Brief Answer:
Can be due to muscle spasm.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The pain and tightness in the back can be due to a muscle spasm. It does not affect the blood flow to organs but is painful. For this it is best to do a hot compress, apply a local analgesic gel like Volini and consult your physician and get oral muscle relaxants prescribed. Once the pain subsides then stretching exercises under the guidance of a physiotherapist will help.
I hope this answers your query.

Brief Answer:
Not related to knots.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
The knots under the skin can be due to muscle spasm or benign masses like lipomas. This needs a direct examination to find out the cause.
The knots are not likely to cause the pull and spasms that you are having.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
