spine soreness

So here is my issue. Around 3 months ago I felt pain from one spot on my spine when I leaned up against something. Since that time I have went to my family doctor who has done an x-ray and a catscan. He didn't see anything on either one so I'm not really sure what is going on. Most of the time it doesn't bother me but if I touch the spot it is sore or if I lean back against something and it touches only that part of my spine it will really hurt. Sometimes I can feel it when bending over but not all the time.

Any ideas?


  • It was a MRI, not a catscan.. sorry about that.
  • when a muscle tightens up you get a spot in the muscle that gets real tender. i think they call it a trigger point. and the muscle has a memory so it keeps tightening up and causing discomfort. the easiest way to get rid of it is to get deep muscle massage....it may take a while but muscle should return to normal after many treatments....dont waste more $ on fancy tests...
    good luck....pete
  • Well the doc gave me some muscle relaxer but it didn't do anything. My doctor really had no idea it seemed. I'm gonna go back to the doctor soon. It doesn't really seem like a muscle issue but I could be wrong. I'll get some massages also. :) I'll post again once I go back to the doc.

    thanks for the replies
