Go to a back specialist and get checked out. That's what I had to do. My doctor would just give me muscle relaxers or pain med and never looked at my back.
One visit to the back specialist and they found out I have mild scoliosis, Degenerative Disk and Facet Disease, and one leg is shorter than the other. He prescribed PT and helped me more than any other doctor did.
Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Glaucoma, Asthma, Hypothyriodism, Sleep Apnea, OA, Depression, Allergies, and benign familia tremors

Yes, I really understand how bad back pain be! I will save you all the gory details for another time. Let's talk about your issue:

You could get an MRI done, maybe you have had some obvious changes.

It is drastic but if needed get another Doctor!

God Bless!
