Chronic Muscle Tightness/Pain Throughout Back for 8 years

Had surgery in 2007 on my right shoulder labrum, about 6 months after started feeling tightness in my leg and then a few weeks after the back started to tighten up and tightened up big time. Basically a deep muscle ache/tightness that feels intensely sore and like I need to crack it all over all the time.
I have tried everything under the sun, pt, botox, decompression, yoga, acupuncture etc. and nothing has worked. The best things I do for maintenance are dry needling and trigger point injections. Meds turn me into a zombie. Has anyone had a similar experience or can anyone offer any guidance or suggestions. One of my docs would like to try the spine stimulator stim implant in my back to see if that could interrupt the pain. My body is always at varying levels of tightness and stress because of this. I'm not really sure what else to try, but if anyone has found results doing something else, please let me know, very desperate.
