Hello dear, welcome to Ask a doctor service.
I read your query and here is my advice.

I think you may better use naproxen than ibuprofen for severe pain.
Also corticosteroids injections may help you.
Firstly you should do a x-ray of lower spine to check for pathologies which can cause it.


Hope I have answered the question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
