Do I have a sprained or damaged/injured back?

I attempted to lift two 19 pound pavers (cement blocks 12x12). They were about at chest level and I was reaching out about two feet from my body. I feel I pulled something. My back is now stiff and aching. Two Advil did not do much.

After lying down for half an hour on my back it became worse. After walking around it seems better. Does this indicate anything?

Is it likely damaged or just strained?

Assuming it is a strained back what is the best way to recover from this?
