Low back pain over 3 months

Hi all, I am new to this and just feel like I want to share my experience of low back pain. Im 23 and have had low back pain for over 3 months, which mighn't feel so long compared to longer sufferers. I believe this to be chronic pain as it is over three months. I feel like I just dont have an answer as to what is causing it. I began firts by having physiotherapy to see if that would solve it but almost 8 sessions later, no use. I have gone to the doctor, taken anti-inflammatories, had an MRI and still no cause or solution. The MRI showed that my discs are all fine and in line so leading me to believe that it is all muscular. The pain began hurting right in the pit of my lower back, like a deep ache that I couldn't reach no matter how much I tried to massage it. It was also on the left side of my lower back and still is now, never ever to the right side. From time to time I get sciatica only down my left leg, it keeps me up at night sometimes. In recent weeks the pain has shifted completely to the left side, no longer in the pit of the lower back, which I feel to be an improvement somewhat. If I put pressure into the sitting position, it hurts the most. I try regular exercises to keep the muscles strengthened as recommended by my physio but still no improvement. I havent played sports since it began and this is really getting me down as I like to keep fit. Has anyone any similiar expereriences to this? What else culd I try? Im just hoping its not a long term thing :(
