Mild pain in lower back, taking Motrin, had cough and pain became severe. Solution?

I fell down four steps on Saturday, February 23. I had mild back pain in the lower back, right side that was controlled with Motrin. I coughed this morning and something happened in my back and now it hurts very bad in the mid back area on the right side. This pain is a bit higher than the initial pain (it feels to be just below the rib cage).
