Lower back pain that shoots up to my left shoulder!

Patient : My lower back (left side of my spine) is killing me.... its sharp pains that don't just stay in my lower back... it shoots up my side and into my left shoulder... the front side of my shoulder... I have been running a low grade fever... I can barely move, cant stand up straight... it hurts to walk, sit, stand, or lay down... Tylenol and naproxen don't even phase it... also been on UTI and Kidney antibiotics... I am crying on a daily basis due to the pain... I have been to the ER 3 times in 1 week from the pain... they ran urine tests and did a CT scan... CT scan came back normal... blood work was in normal ranges... urine showed a UTI that could be traveling up to my kidneys... dr assured me this should not be causing my pain though... I am on my cycle and passing clots that range from tiny to a tad bit bigger than the size of a quarter... so what in the world could be causing all this...? What can I do?! I don't want to go back to the ER but seriously considering it....
