Here are a few things you should consider:

1. Are you hydrated enough? Pls consume enough water and fluids (not package juice) everyday.
2. Are you a smoker? If so quitting and adequate rehab may help you.
3. When you say physio didn't help me I would say you did not visit the right physio/ or you did and didn't follow the rehabilitation protocol. Kindly revisit a physiotherapist for further evaluation and treatment
4. If your profession requires you to sedentry relook at the way you work. For example you may need to take a short walk around  your table /workstation every 20 mins or so and that may help you.
5. Consider a visit to the urologist for an opinion.
6. I would say go to a Physio(movement therapist) first . Follow the protocol. Please avoid ""prescribed"" physio as that may not work for you. It takes 6 months to an year of commited rehab. If this doesn't work then consider other routes of treatment.
All the best.

I'm not sure if u've seen any orhopaedic surgeon for your back pain, if not please do so. Moreover get your vitamin D levels, CBC with ESR and uric acid(blood tests) done fasting. Revert back with investigations reports.

For spine diagnostics, MRI is necessary...Ensure that you maintain an appropriate posture while working or sitting or walking....Take frequent stretch breaks and drink lots of water...Discontinue using pillow while sleeping straight...Do not lift heavy objects, especially after bending down....Eat a healthy wholesome meal which should satisfy your minerals and proteins requirement...take over the counter pain medications.. Consult nearest orthopedic surgeon they will do the needful.
