Sharp back knee and hip pain not reacted to otc painkillers


Q: Started as lower Back pain like a pulled muscle but across the whole lower back. 3 days later Back hips and right knee sharp pain when seated. only on right side.
Relieves a little when walking, hurts more when seated if I walk a lot without breaks. day 5 Groin area also hurts when walking.
Sharp back pain comes and goes with muscle pain seated and walking. Hard to sleep but feel alot better in the mornings for an hour or 2.
Im taking Aleve 440mg alternating ibuprophen 400mg and take robaxin 500mg 3 to 4 times a day. None help the pain.
Massage doesnt help, bengay pain patches dont help. Stretching doesn't help. Got an xray done 2 days ago and have a follow up doctors appointment on tuesday. Any ideas what it could be. My doctor thinks I just pulled a muscle. But it feels like more to me.

Symptoms:  Sharp back hip and knee pain.
