Back Problems board

Hi everyone!
I started having upper back pain a little over 2 weeks ago. I went to the ER because it was so bad, and I was only there for an hour, they took an x-ray, was told it was fine, and was given vicodin and a muscle relaxer. After having that 1 1/2 weeks, nothing has changed. I have even tried heat and ice. Even tried a hot tub, but it even hurts to have the jets on it. Went to family doctor yesterday and he told me he doesn't know what it is, and gave me codeine and a different muscle relaxer. Is it possible to have a pulled muscle for this long, with this much pain, and a muscle relaxer isn't helping? Or could there be something more to it?? Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!!
