I get lower back pain when doing certain activities such as standing barbell curls (regardless of weight), squats, and a couple household tasks, such as washing the dishes and lifting objects ( I lift with my legs), but I do not get ANY lower back pain whatsoever when doing deadlifts, and I rep out 405 on them. This leads me to believe it might not be a serious spinal problem, but I can't be sure. I can't afford to see the doctor right now or I'd get an MRI, so any insight is helpful. And to clarify, it doesn't hurt in my spine, it mainly hurts in the muscles around my spine.
