First, stop doing the military press. Now. Give your back a rest.
Next, see a doctor and get a couple of X-rays of the lumbar spine (the lower part of the back). This will indicate whether you have any early degeneration or spinal stenosis.
If the X-rays are clear, and once you have given your back a rest, then resume your routine. But get some feedback from others at the gym to make sure you are doing them with correct form. Also, lighten the weight in favor of more reps - you will still see results, but will not do as much damage to your back.
Whoever said, "No pain, no gain," has never truly felt lower back pain. Whatever you do, first and foremost, play it safe.
