Shocking spine pain: "Electrical shocks" down the spine may be a serious problem.

I suspect your scoliosis might be a factor, but many people have similar symptoms without scoliosis. Best to discuss this with a back specialist. Ask your family doctor first and see if a referral is indicated. ...Read more

Pinched nerve: It could be related to residual muscle spasm and sprain, but there could be a herniated disc causing impingement on nerves.
