Lower right side back pain, no tingling

I'm 44,, 5'9", 177lbs. and I was in what I thought was pretty good shape. On January 30, I did something to my lower right side. I was playing disc golf (If you don't know what that is, I apologize). The pain started as a groin issue that eventually became a right side lower back issue over the course of about an hour. The groin issue went away; the back pain has stayed. I've never had a back issues but I will admit that sometimes my entire lower back gets very tight, and I have to really stretch it out. But that's been going on for 15 years. However, never any pain.

I thought I originally had a psoas muscle aggravation. But I'm pretty that's not it now. When I say lower right side of my back, I don't mean at the top of my butt. It's more like 3 inches above it and about 2 inches to the right side of my spine. I have no pain on the spine itself.

I suppose it could be a disc problem but have no tingling in my feet or legs, and no loss of lower mobility. Plus, the pain isn't actually on the spine.

However, what makes my back feel bad is bending over straight forward. What's weird is I can bend down at angle decently okay. But straight down--forget it. Also what hurts--getting into the driver's side of a car where you're kind of leading "butt first".

The movements that relieve the pain seem to be the stretching out of the area.

I'm hoping this is just a muscle or ligament strain. In general, it feels better now than it did 5 days ago but this morning when I got up for about 10 minutes I thought I was going to die. Now, a couple hours later, the pain has subsided and I haven't taken any drugs for pain relief.

Anybody got any ideas? Thank you.
