    There are alot of things that can cause this. You could have strained a muscle or tendon in that area, you could have an irritated nerve from wear and tear to your discs or through an injury. A fractured lumbar or sacrum bone can cause pain to radiate around the waist (this often happens in elderly people). There's also the possibility of arthritis or kidney problems or others. 

     You'll have to see your doctor to figure this out.
