Just curious how an upper back spasm feels to be honest. I called my dr. last week because of an intense pain before bed in my upper back/right shoulder blade area. My chest hurt my neck hurt. It was VERY painful (I've had two children and worse than any contraction I've ever had) I didn't want to take a deep breath it was that bad. It would build and then go away for a couple seconds and lasted about an hour.
Then the next morning I woke up to the pain again, lasted about an hour with me almost calling an ambulance. I'm 33, no heart problems etc.
My dr. seems to think it's my gallbladder. They did the liver and pancreas blookwork and it was normal. This Wed. I'm having an abdominal ultrasound.....
I have back problems and post on the "lower back pain" board. I had a micro-d in 2007 on my lower back. I type a lot and work at the computer all day. I wonder if it was a back spasm and I just don't know the difference. Would a neck CT show anything or do they do a thoracic CT? I have no idea where to go next if they gallbladder looks OK.
Thanks in advance,
