Back pain getting more wide spread and worse

Patient : I have many symptoms and I am unsure if they are related, it started about a year ago with shoulder and neck pain, driving and sitting in an upright position made it a lot worse, this has gotten progressively worse as times gone on. I've had various pain medications, acupuncture, physio, I had a neck X-ray which was clear, so they've put it down to muscles. About a month ago I started getting a pain in the middle of my back and shoulder blade on the left side, made worse when doing activity ie cooking, also had feelings of extreme tiredness, saw the doctor a couple of weeks ago and again this was put down to muscles. Today I get woken early from severe pain in my right side in around the middle of my back, no position is comfortable and I still have all the other symptoms. It's so frustrating not knowing what it is, I'm fed up of being in so much pain.
