Hello, Anon.

Thank you for your post.

Back spasms can be chronic depending on the condition. Pain can radiate to the waist and flanks. Have you seen a back specialist or chiropractor? Maybe some physical therapy can help as well as a home exercise program. You have had several tests to rule out anything more serious, which is good.

Keep us updated.
