For about 3 weeks now I have been feeling as though I have been kicked in the upper back and left with that horrible winded feeling. It's like I have bruised ribs, I expect it to be painful when I breathe in but it isn't.
There is a specific tender spot about 2 inches to the left of my spine (roundabout T3/4 level). The most comfortable position for me is laying down but at night time that's when my arms/hands start playing silly games and waking me up ........ that's another story! As the day goes on I can feel the 'bruising' feeling coming on, by the afternoon it feels like it has wrapped itself around to my chest. It's so unpleasant, it feels like I'm being squeezed and that my breathing should be restricted.
I've had lumbar and cervical problems, both of which presented very different symptons. This is another new type of pain. Does it sound similar to anything any of you have experienced?
I don't mind admitting that this is concerning me, the discomfort is nearly as bad as the sciatica and that was so so so so bad.
