I can't offer much help, but I thought I'd input that my toes go numb when I go riding, and I've only noticed it since I got a new pair of boots. Is there something like that consistent with when it happens to you?
What sort of pain is it in your back? If it's a sharper pain, it could definitely be a nerve. If it's a duller, aching pain, you could have something like a bulging disc.
Also, don't feel bad :P I'm a 20 year old with arthritis, stuffed ankles and knees, back, and elbow. You'll just have to be like me and hope that scientists hurry and develop full-body transplants (or better yet, cyborg bodies! [sci-fi-freak])!
