19M: Left Side Back pain for around 6-7 months?

Okay, so basically I have this weird back pain in my upperish left side back. In order for me to feel any relief from it, I have to crack my back multiple times a day. Sitting or standing in a position for too long causes it to "build up" and when its really bad i have to pop my back and it goes a way for some temporarily relief. Its more sharp, and it doesn't come in any pattern or certain times. 

I noticed the pain goes away when i'm doing excercises like running or weightlifting, it also helps for me to foam roll it out at the gym.

I would say its located in the region near where my kidney would be. 

My doctors have done 2 Xrays of my spine and 2 ultrasounds of my kidneys and they said nothing looks wrong there. What should I do? What could this be? Is there anything I could try to fix it (Maybe any excercises or core training, etc?).

Please help



  • 6-7 months is a long time to still be in lots of pain. If I were you I’d be asking my family doctor for a referral to a neurosurgeon. I also would want an MRI as many would argue that x-rays are insufficient in what they reveal.
