Lower back pain

Patient : I have pain in my lower back. There is not specific injury that occurred. There are times that if I am bending over I need to stop because the pain shoots through my back. Getting up after sitting down can also be very painful. I have had this for a few months and have used Tylenol, etc. Going to the hospital is not my favorite thing so have been avoiding looking after this but it seems to be getting worse.
