Hello Audrey,
     Such type of pain may be because of three reasons either involvement of your spinal segment L1 or due to sacroiliac joint strain or involvement of hip.
The pain due to involvement of spine should be continuous & generally not relieved by lying down & aggravated by coughing.I think this pain may be due to excessive strain on the sacroiliac joint that may be due to some abnormal strain due to your work,You should check it & avoid the abnormal posture or acute angle bending at your hip.You may use a supportive lumber corset if you can.
   On the safe side you should have an x ray of your hip to rule out an early development of osteoarthritis so that you can start good medicines that can almost relieve your problem(like glucosamine,chondroitin or diacerin)
I think it will help you.
With Regards.
