To begin, I am 21 years old and a relatively healthy female...

For the past 10 months, I have been experiencing strange vibrations within my body. These tingling sensations begin at my legs (left leg in particular), then proceed up my back to my neck... they are not painful.

However, I am also experiencing very severe lower back pain, mainly on the left side of my body. My back always feels 'sore' (a bruised-like sensation), and at certain times, I experience quick bouts (2-10 seconds) of excruciating back pain.

I have gone for two MRIs back in January, which turned out to be fine. Recently, I have developed night sweats (which may or may not be related)...

But this pain has become unbearable at times. Sitting, resting, and laying down do not help. I have tried changing my exercise habits as well as my diet, and there has been no improvements.

I was curious as to whether these symptoms are associated with anything in particular? I hope they are not psychosomatic because the pain I endure at times, is truly unbearable.

Thank you kindly in advance.
