  • Have you had an MRI done on your back. I have very simular problems, due to bulging disk in my back and neck.

  • Have you had an MRI done on your back. I have very simular problems, due to bulging disk in my back and neck.I had a similar issue due to two partially herniated discs, including the knot off to one side as I'd also damaged my muscles. It was an injury that caused these symptoms with me. Have you done anything that could have hurt your back? Especially twisting.
