Left Mid Back Pain that won't go away

Hi, I am a 35 year old female, healthy with my only issue being about 30 lbs overweight. I have never had a back injury (that I am aware of) and have recently been experiencing pain that will not go away. My pain started as an aching sensation in my mid lower back, that would feel better after 800 mg Motrin. That lasted a few days, and now I am experiencing constant pain in my left lower back, that starts under my shoulder blade and runs down along my left side and radiates towards my tailbone region. My right side has no pain at all. This pain is constant but gets worse with certain movements. I have switched to Naproxen for pain relief, without much success and I use a heating pad every chance I get. Anyone have any experience with this? Any ideas? Massage seems to aggravate it too. I am a nurse, and I am getting ready to start a new job and would really like to get this figured out. I have not worked in over 2 months so I don't believe this is related to a work injury. If anyone has any ideas.....please send them my way, Thanks!!
