    Back ache that won't go away

    For over a week I've been having back pain. The pain is mostly located a few inches below my right shoulder blade. I've tried NSAIDs, heat, massages, yoga, even going braless. But the pain keeps coming back. When my husband massages my back he said that he feels knots and massages the pain away but the pain comes right back 5 to 10 minutes later.
    I emailed my doctor. He said to try epsom salt soaks, deep tissue massages and stretching. But the pain keeps coming back. My doctor doesn't have any appointments available for 2 weeks so I'm a little desperate. Any ideas what this could be?
    I'm only 33. I do work a job that requires lifting but I usually get lower back pain from that.
