Severe back pain

I play college basketball and I am 23 years old, I am type 1 diabetic and just had my first grand mal seizure 9 days ago, since the seizure I have been to the chiropractor 3 times, seen my endo and a neurologist, nothing anyone had done has helped my severe pain in the mid back along my left spinal column. It is preventing me from participating in my season and nothing helps the pain. It is the most painful when I tuck my chin to my chest, it is extremely sharp and feels like my back needs to be popped in that area but it wont. Also I have had my girlfriend try to massage the spot which she says has a really severe tense knot but it doesn't help. I don't know who to see or what to do to make it better so I can resume playing and pursuing my career.
