Lower back pain when moving. Taken ibuprofen. Difficulty in lowering the head

Hi there, I wonder if you could help with my back pain I have been experiencing for about 6 weeks now, lower back pain when moving, not sore to touch, I am pretty fit, have done yoga to see if it eases, I have to take lots of ibuprofen before and after any exercise, even if I rest it hurts, I am 43 years old, I surf, run, go to a gym regularly, and swim and do yoga, anything I do hurts at the moment, when I lower my neck there is an excruciating pain in my lower back. Any help would be great, thanks

Hi, Dmorgan,
Thanks for query,
It seems that you are having some degenerative changes like osteoartheritis changes in your vertebral column giving rise to this problem.
Go for x ray lumbo sacral region and find out the cause.
If there is osteoartheritis then consult orthopedic surgeon and seek his advice.
Physiotherapy will help a lot.
Ok and bye.
