So much pain but normal MRI

I have been having horrible upper back pain right on my spine where my bra strap runs. Feels like I have an ice pick stuck in my back! I've had X-rays and a thoracic MRI with normal results. I'm at a loss on what to do at this point! I hurt so bad all the time and it interferes with my life. I was recently put on Tramadol and it takes the edge off but it's not enough. I've tried predisone with no luck either and feel like my drs think I'm drug seeking. I'm not even supposed to have NSAID's but I chanced it to see if it would help and nothing. Has anyone gone thru something similar? I was devastated when I got my results bc I just knew I had a fracture that wasn't being picked up by the MRI. The pain doesn't feel like muscle and seems to be coming directly from the spinal process.
