Intense pain in the middle of my back, is it because of lymph node ?

I have had this intense pain in the middle of my back but only on my left side. It feels like a charley horse sometimes and if I make a sudden movement at times, the pain gets so intense and the muscles spasm. Its only getting worse and at times I have to massage the area just to get back up in the sitting position. I am 52 years old, 5 8 tall, weigh about 210. I did have surgery about 5 years ago on my left side middle of my back to remove an infection. The culture confirmed I had been bitten by a black widow. Caused a staph infection. After surgery, I had a picc line and 10 days of vangomiacin treatments twice a day. Haven t had any problems in this area until recently. I ve been dealing with this pain for a couple of months. Also, in the last week added pain in my neck left side lymph nodes couple inches down from back of ear

Welcome to health care magic
     your basic problem of back pain is due to compression of some nerve roots ,which causes backache,you should get x-ray spine AP & lateral view ,along with MRI spine if you can afford to find the cause & treat it .For neck lymph node go for blood tests & FNAC to clinch the correct diagnosis.
