Pain in the lower back. Due to bad posture? Pain worsens on swimming

Hi. Got a longterm pain/ache lower back right side. I think it s my hip. Now the left side is niggly. It used to be gone in morning but nowadays it s still slightly tender/sore but definitely bearable. I wonder if I ve got bad posture which puts pressure on something. Swimming (dog paddling around pool) definitely aggravates it as does lots of walking. Being overweight doesn t help I m sure. It help when lying in bed to pull my knees up high and when sitting to drop my knee to side as in putting my foot on opposite knee Cathie

Being a long term pain, better u do an usg abdomen to rule out nephrolithiasis(kidney stones).
If the pain is related to muscles,will be relieved by hot fomentation,u can try tht also.
