lower back pain radiates into legs

my lower back is always hurting.sometimes it just a dull ache and sometimes its shooting pains.but their is pain there everyday. i also always have pain in my legs. the pain in my legs is like a deep ache in the bones. i hve had mris done and they say my back looks great.so if the problem isnt in my back where else could it be radiating from. i have lived with this pain for 8 years. ive been to tons of different doctors and they all tell me the same thing, my back looks great, or they tell me to exercise my back more and for 8 years ive been telling them i do back exercises all the time. ive been to physicall therapy and i learned all the back exercises from them. it doesnt help though.im just so tired off being in pain all the time. any suggestions or ideas of what this could be?

Are you male or female?  Does the pain change week to week or is it always the same level of pain?  And do you feel any pain in your abdomen?

im female. the pain is always there.from day to day it verys in strength.some days its at an 8 and i can barely move.sometimes its like a 4-5.i dont get pain in my stomach but i have a lot of pain in my female organs which i was diagnosed with endometriosis. im on seasonal birth control and that helps the endo. i also get ovarian cysts. would that have anything to do with the back and leg pain?

I think you need to get copies of all your reports including
bloodwk. Someones not being straight w/ you. Back pain usually
has an elevated SED rate in bloodtests. Lumbar mri should show
something by now of a bulge/spur/disk problem. If you take meds
pre-testing it can take inflammation dwn to appear normal.
Generally back to leg pain is a nerve problem from spine or
obesity. If obese, glucose is elevated. No matter what, posture
should have been ck'd in case stomache muscles are weak & not
supporting back. Tell them you're starting a Hm-Health-File.
It's free & also the law. Gd-luck.
