I have pain in the middle of my back, on the spine area

Customer Question
I have pain in...

I have pain in the middle of my back, on the spine area about 1/3 the way down the spine. It has happened before and went away however, this time it is almost constant and the pain is about a 7 out of 10.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you had any recent injuries? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

The pain is a feeling of automatic/systematic. Nothing i do makes it better. I have not taken anything. No injuries.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
