Hi, im a 17 year old girl with back pains

Patient : Hi, im a 17 year old girl with back pains. My back is constantly hutting, and is painful. Sometimes i feel like i get a sharp shock feelig along the middle of my back. And also sometimes i ger shock feelings every once in awile that feels like i just got shocked by an outlet. Can you suggest what could be wrong with me? i went to a lady doctor who said she didnt want to do an MRI on me because i was still young, she said its because of carrying bookbags and wearing sandals. But that was before the shocking started happening.
