Please help - Mysterious chronic back "pulling" sensation

I was just wondering if anyone out there has known of or experienced this condition before. The feeling is not as much as a chronic pain as it is a "pulling sensation" that is unlocalized. Sometimes it happens at the lower back/lumbar region and the buttocks and sometimes it goes higher up to the upper back and shoulder area. Sometimes the muscles feel stiff but other times it does not, but I still feel the "pulling". I've been suffering this intense condition for nearly 3 months nonstop. Getting up and doing things is very uncomfortable and lying down provides some relief (until the next time I get up again). Pain medications have been ineffective and I've tried massages and acupuncture only to get temporary relief. I've seen several doctors but have not found a solution and it may not be
biomechanical in nature. I am trying to figure out this puzzle
that nobody seems to be able to know what's going on or even to put me on the right track to find a solution. I'm not sure how much longer I can take of this, please help!
