Mid Pack Pain at Night

Posted , 2 users are following.

For almost a year now I have had mid back pain on my left side that radiates to my ribs. It started slowly at my ribs and didn't bother me too much. But for over six months the pain goes from my ribs to the edge of my spine and is bad enough it wakes me up and I cannot get back to sleep. The pain is only at night and once I've been up for about 20 mins it subsides. I do sometimes barely feel it throughout the day but it's very unnoticeable. I have seen a spine surgeon who ordered MRIs but nothing shows up. He has given me trigger point injections but after a month it wears off. Lidocaine patches sometimes help but not all the time. I was using a CBD salve that was working for a bit but doesn't anymore. I have also tried PT, dry needling, acupuncture, massages, and seeing a chiropractor. Anyone experience pain like this and were they able to find a cure?
