In brief: Back Pain

You should see a spine specialist.
One thing that is often missed is spondylolisthesis which is very common and occasionally can be seen only on flexion/extension x-rays. I have seen this missed many times on MRI since this is only shows a picture of the spine while lying on your back and not while bending.
