Hi, thanks for using HCM
in my opinion you should stop worrying. For immediate relief have some pain killer along with a muscle relaxant and have proper bed rest for 2 weeks. Do not lie down on soft mattress use hard one instead, do not sit for longer durations and do not travel long distance for 2 weeks .When getting up from bed always take a lateral position first then hang your legs down and then get up. When working , maintain a good posture of your back . Add a lumbar support cushion to you chair. Do not strain your self or over exert. . U can also apply some good anti inflamatory pain killer gel on your back.If the pain increases do some hot fermentation locally and make a routine of doing some back strengting exercise daily . Start wil 10 mins twice a day to 20 mins twice a day and walk for 30-40 mins a day alteast. I am sure you will be fine in 2 weeks
