pain for 12 years.

my name is Spencer, and here's my story. about 12 years ago i was lifting truck tires into the back of my truck and when i was lifting the second tire i felt a pop and a electrical shock about mid way up my spine. the pain was so bad that i collapsed to the ground for about 15 minutes until my legs stopped shaking. ever since then I've had this same pain in the same spot.  i went to the emergency room shorty after the incident and was told that i had pulled a muscle, after telling them what happened i was like "how could they think that"?. months lather the pain persisted and i got a x-ray which turned out to be fine,a few more months later the pain still persisted i got a MRI that turned out to be fine.i have had several doctors and many more tests, all say that i should be fine. i recently was looking through my MRI disk and i think i can see the there a way to post the image here and get some more eyes on it, i'm not great with human anatomy. any help would be much appreciated.

    Hello sratkins!

    As I read your story, I did not see where you stated what kind of doctors you were seeing. Back in Feb. I had kept telling my doctor I was in a lot more pain than I should be seeing I have a pain pump. A neurosurgeon did my MRI and found the problems. If it were to happen again, I will see a neurosurgeon or neurologist for a MRI. I always get second opinions.

    Take care and keep us posted.
