First and foremost I would stop deadliting over 90%. Second, I would consider reducing your floor pulling. Perhaps a 3 week cycle:

Week one - 3" block deadlifts
Week two - Low rack pulls and power shrug combo
Week three - Floor deadlifts up to around 90%

When your week 3 deadlift feels manageable, add 5 pounds the next time. This seems like slow progression, but it's not for the stage you are at. It focuses you to add weight when it feels appropriate.

I would try this and see how your back feels.
