I believe that I have thoractic problems, but haven't had any MRI or xrays. I had C5/6 fused in June and then C4/5/6 in August. Since then my upper back between the shoulder blade and just down from them has been aching like I've been stabbed. Worse in the morning when I wake up. Yesterday around noon, I started coughing hard and my stomach muscle cramped up. It took me some time to keep arching my back and stretching back to get them to stop. I'm already taking Zanaflex as a muscle relaxer. I'm also aching in my ribs.
Does anyone else have stomach catches or cramping up? Does this sound like T problems? My NS isn't wanting to "look" for anything else after two C fusions back to back. He's useless as far as aftercare. I may can get my GP to order some tests. Not sure which way to address this. I have a hot tub and would love to live in it, believe me. One of my neck MRI's did show T1 bulging, but I guess that's as far down as a cervical MRI goes. This hurts so much.
