Lower spine/Sacrum pain

I'm a 20 year old woman. I've had lower spine/sacrum problems for a little over 2 years now, but back pain for about 5 years.
I started really noticing I have a problem when I was able to clench my glute muscles and my vertebrae would pop back into place. I can do this just about every few minutes. As of late, I have been noticing more and more pain, and it's bee kind of debilitating. I have also been told by my coworker (I'm a Massage Therapist) that he's noticed some scoliosis that has formed.
The last time I went to the doctors about my back pain, I was told that "Just take some advil, it's nothing, you're young"
If anyone could help me even get the slightest clue as to what could be wrong with me, it would be greatly appreciated. I would just like to see a doctor and have at least an idea of what they could be looking for. Thank you

    When you saw your doctor did he say that popping your vertebrae was normal? And young people just can do that?
    It can be a norm somewhere... I just have never heard of it.

    Has doctor ever taken a back wray to see what's up?
    Most importantly, I'm so sorry you're pain is not being taken seriously. My thinking is to continue to tell your doctor about your pain and maybe a second opinion...I would tell how you are living in pain until one of the doctors listen.

    I think we here share a lot re' pain and other issues but every person is so individual. Only the doctor can exam... perform tests... and come up with a diagnosis...or at least if he doesn't know what's wrong, he will help you to be comfortable while he continues to investigate the source.

    And you are young! All the more reason for doc to help you! But you showing up on this site seems to indicate you ready to continue to advocate for yourself! Keep us posted on how you are doing!
