What can this pain be?! Please help...


I know that in cases like these the best bet is to go to the doctor. Right now I haven't been able to but I am definitely thinking of calling and making an appointment because this pain has been going on for too long. I have had it for months BUT it would first come and go...Some days I had it, other days I had it too but at a lessened level.

Regardless it has gradually become more and more consistent. To the point where today I am really feeling it at an 8.5 or 9 in a scale of 1-10...

I try straightening my back and that doesn't help. I try leaning more to one side or to the other and that doesn't help. The pain is always at the SAME spot though, and it is really getting stronger. I was at the hair salon today and I noticed how it began hurting me as I was sitting under the hair dryer (I take like an hour and a half in there). So maybe sitting down causes it to hurt more, all I know is that I find no way of getting rid of it, I lay down and go rest and that still doesn't help.

Here's a diagram, I circled the main area of where the pain is located, I also put two smaller circles which show that I feel little aches there, as if the pain from the big spot was to spread...


I'm afraid that I am now once in a while feeling aches on the other side as well, may be sign that as the pain is getting stronger it somehow spreads a bit. While I take a day out to visit the doctor I would like some opinions, maybe I can search online for possible conditions and see if I can work a way into lessening the pain in the meantime.
