Your lower back will likely hurt to some extent regardless of chair. Getting a good chair + working on some mobility throughout the day will be best

For under $200, this chair has been great https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000PWGZOI?psc=1&ref=ppx_pop_mob_b_asin_title

Would go with something ergonomic. Depends on your budged. Hm/ Steelcase or MyoChair/ Ergochair Check this out https://joinfishbowl.com/comment_v4hm9s

My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
