Hi everyone, I've been absent these last few days because I of severe upper back pain. It just hit me out of the blue,it felt like I was stuck with a knife between the shoulder blades and it took my breath away. It hurt so bad to move. Then the pain radiated to the ride side of my ribs, and I felt pressure like pain all across the area. At times it was uncomfortable to even speak. I have felt the pain go up to my shoulder and neck sometimes, and also have intermittent electric pain in my thumb, forefinger, and middle finger.
I don't get this. The constant features is the deep aching burning pain in the upper back, and the one sided rib cage pain. I do have an appt tomorrow. My problems have been mainly lumbar, but a few years ago I did have thoracic pain. The MRI only showed DDD and disc bulges. I don't even remember which levels they were. Should I be worried? I already have more than enough to deal with with my lower back problems. This is too much. Anyone out there with thoracic problems? Thanks guys.
