Back pain: Increased pain while sitting on the floor without back support is most likely muscular. It could be the sacroiliac joint as well. Disc herniation can also cause pain while sitting but is usually midline and not to one side. Try using lumbar support or simply a pillow behind the lower back. Change position frequently whenever possible. ...Read more

What can cause me to have sharp chest pain associated with high left side back pain up into the back of my neck sometimes causing a headache?

Heart Disease?: With the limited information, the foremost concern would be a heart condition such as angina. I would recommend that you get evaluated as soon as possible. It is possible you have cervical spine or a muscular cause for your symptoms, but these conditions are not life-threatening. Please get a cardiology evaluation first and make sure you don't have symptoms related to heart disease. ...Read more

Lower back pain right side goes up back to right shoulder causing knot?

Back Pain and lump: Symptoms of a "knot" or "lump" are most likely a muscle spasm if painful. Understand that the spinal muscles attach from base of skull down to pelvis. So, spasms may travel the entire length in some cases. Shoulder pain/knot suggests levator scapula syndrome, which is a spasm of the muscle at the upper junction of shoulder blade and spine. Usually a posture problem. Try salonpas patches & stretch. ...Read more

See your pcp as you may be helped with a simple trigger point injection of the joint ligaments. If he does not do those injections check ortho or pain management. ...Read more

Could be UTI: The symptoms you have are consistent with a urinary tract infection. The fact that your back hurts implies that it may have begun to spread into the kidney.
