Hi, i am 16 years old and have had severe

Patient : Hi, i am 16 years old and have had severe back pain for over a year. A doctor diagnosed me with AMPS but I am extremely skeptical that i actually have it. In the past week or so I have been experiencing a new pain. When i touch on a certain spot on my spine it turns and if i even bend my back backwards or forwards even in inch there is incredibly pain. In addition, I have muscle spasms throughout my entire body but they are not painful. Can you help?
