23 yrs old back pain

I have pretty constaint back pain and im 23 yrs old. Sometimes its so much that i get almost frozen for a few seconds until my back calms down, other times (most of the time) its more annoying than anything. Ive had my back go 100%out on me once where i was stuck lying on the floor for hours before i could move again (happened years ago maybe 4 or 5).

It basically feels like my very lower back, basically where my waistline is on my shorts, needs a really good streching but i cant seem to fond an exercise online to do this. Another weird situation is if i bend to touch my toes i cant go straight down i get stuck and have to go around it if that makes sense. 

Any ideas on how i could feel better. I try to not go to doctors unless i have too. Im not overweight, im fairly active, and this is more of a nusense than an issue.
