Thank you for all the information.There a a thing or two things that I would like to have considered and ruled out considering that all the tests that you have had done have come back normal.I think that this pain that you are having could be a nerve pain.This can happen in a couple of ways.It could be due to a pinched nerve in the back which is diagnosed by doing a MRI of your back.It could be neuropathy related to your diabetes.I would recommend that you should have MRI of your back and be given nerve pain medications like pregabalin, gabapentin, to see if those help with your problem.Let me know if you have more questions.Rate me by clicking on one of the stars when done.Kind regards
