Intermittent pain

Hi guys! 

So I’ve been having intermittent SEVERE upper back pain. I am 26 years old and female just FYI. Every once in a while, for no reason I can discern (not always moving sometimes just sitting or laying down sometimes bending over etc.) I will get this pain in my upper left back just between the middle of my shoulder blade and my spine. It is so severe as to stop me in my tracks. It usually only lasts anywhere between few seconds to a minute or two then stops. Other times it will come on and last for an hour or two and nothing I take seems to relieve it. It feels very sharp and I’m not sure what’s causing it. I had an MRI on my neck a few weeks ago because that is what my doctor suspected but it came back normal aside from some slight straightening. Anyone have any idea what this could be? Oh and also I have some Skelaxin 800 muscle relaxers that I have had for a while I take them ever it gets real bad but these literally seem like they are doing nothing. They don’t help in the slightest and no pain medication I have taken has helped either when it gets really bad up to and including some 7 mg hydrocodones i has left over from my gallbladder surgery I tried taking one time....I always just have to wait it out....does anyone have any ideas/clues/suggestions? They would be greatly appreciated!
