Dear *****iel, Thanks for providing quick additional information.
I'm so sorry to hear of your discomfort.
Your symptoms have come due to compression of sciatica nerve, it can be compressed all of a sudden, during postural changes. Associated nerves in lower spine, may also be affected, and this has caused severe lower back pain.
Kindly follow these measures-
-Application of ice packs on lower back for 15 minutes can be done 3-4 times a day.
-Stretching exercises for your low back can help you feel better and may help relieve nerve root compression.
-You should take help from physical therapist. Physical therapy
includes various modalities like - Short wave diathermy, Infra red , Wax therapy , these will help you a lot.
-You can take OTC painkiller like Motrin twice a day.
-You may be prescribed with may be prescribed with Vicodin, It contains acetaminophen and hydrocodone
and will help to resolve symptoms.
-In case, symptoms doesn't improve, then your doctor can prescribe- certain anti-seizure and anti-depressant medications. It helps in blocking pain messages sent to the brain. If required Epidural steroid injections can be advised. An epidural steroid injection places this powerful anti-inflammatory medication directly around the spinal nerves.
You may be advised MRI of lower spine for precise diagnosis.
I would recommend that you visit your primary doctor for evaluation and get it managed.
