Have constant back pain. Sitting and bending is excruciating. Advice?

I am 43 and never had any back issues in my life. For a week now I have constant consistant pain in my lower back. It came out of no where. I was not doing any unusual strenuous activities. I went to a walk in clinic and all he did was give me pain killers of which I dont want to take until i know what it is. It feels like its deep and at the base of my spine . It is definitly not muscular pain it is deep inside and feels like something is pushing on the base of my spine. Im ok to stand and walk and laydown but sitting and bending is excruciating.

Thank you putting your query.
in my opinion most of the time in such cases you just need symptomatic management.
as your doctor prescribe you pain killers.most of the time symptoms vanish.
but if even after this you doesnt get relief then consult an orthopedician.after undergoing some investigations it will be clear what it is.
take care of yourself.
get well soon.
