Back problems (again?)

Ouch, my back. For the past week and a half, maybe two weeks now, my lower back has been hurtin'. I keep thinking I may have strained it while lifting something heavy, but I can't remember lifting any heavy boxes in the past week. Weird. It doesn't hurt when I bend over to, say, touch my toes. I can straighten back up again with no problem. It tends to ache more when I stand up from a seated position, like a chair. It feels like something is pinching down on the muscles around my spine.

I wonder how long I can do nothing about it. Kendrick recommended a certain exercise but it hasn't helped much. I think I have a pilates DVD somewhere specifically for back trouble; I don't think it was terribly effective in the past however.
