Perhaps you should ask your Doctor to book you an appointment with a Rheumatologist? After being in pain from 2002 due to a bone growing around my spine and nerve, I saw a new doctor who immediately booked me with this specialist. He sent me for several different tests and has determined it is not only the bone around the spine but Osteoarthritis and Fybromyalgia.(spelling)
He has managed my pain with medication that is not addictive.
Maybe this will work for you.

Have you tried a chiropractor? Your pain might be caused by skeletal misalignment which doesn't come up unless you are looking for it. Without monthly chiropractic alignment sessions, I would be a basket case.

My pain started when I was in my late 20's. I am now 71 years old. I did not get a correct answer to what was wrong until I had an MRI of my back about 12 years ago.

I'm not surprised that you don't have a diagnosis yet. It took me 8 years to get a correct diagnosis. When I first went to a spine clinic, I was given paper work, to take with me, and read. It said that 80% of all back pain is never diagnosed. I'm not sure I believe it is that high, but I do believe that some never gets diagnosed. I wouldn't give up. What to the doctor's tell you? We know that something is causing your pain.
So if they can't diagnose it, how are they treating it?

Many of us will always live in some level of pain. After 21 years in terrible pain, I got better. Don't know the reason why. That was 3 years ago. Then 2 1/2 years ago, I had open heart surgery, that caused pain between my shoulder blades. Just saw the cardiologist and told him I was still in that pain and he said I was probably one of those "lucky" ones that will never get rid of that pain. I guess it is not all that uncommon, but did I really need another source.
