Ow the pain  
So, I left work a little early today because of extreme lower back pain. It's gone away slightly since then--but not much.

It started at lunch with a little twinge every time I coughed (for those in the know, The Cough is back >_<). By the time lunch was over, it was a general achiness. After about twenty minutes, it was pure pain with spikes whenever I bent the wrong direction.

It could have been caused by exercise (I lifted last night), but wouldn't that have shown up before lunchtime? Regardless, I came back from work to lie down for a while and am currently sitting at my computer with a heating pad and a cup of green tea. Hopefully that helps...

do you think it might be another kidney stone?

I really doubt it. Kidney stones are more OMFG THE PAIN AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA in one place, where as this was spread throughout my back. It felt like muscle soreness, but I don't think that lifting would have been enough to cause it. Unless it was :-\

if you're pain persists...
try ice, not heat. heat will loosen tight muscles helping pain in the short term, but it does nothing to reduce swelling. so a lot of times the pain persists.

If it makes you feel better...
...I knew it was you. Unfortunately, I think you're the person I know with the most experience in these things :-\
