Severe back pain

Patient : I was moving furniture and I reached to my right and went to tip a box towards me, I got a incredible pain on my lower back and now I am laying on the floor unable to move with out pain in my lower back. Its a shark quick pain that gets worse if I put use my back at all. The pain sits at about 1-2 out of 10 when i dont move but goes to 7-8 out of 10 if i move. I am unsure if i should call a ambulance or just lay here and wait to be able to move
