I'm new here. I'm a 41 year old female that's been suffering from upper back pain for more than 1 year. It started as more of an ache in my upper back that seemed postural, then about 8 months ago I fell from a chair and landed flat on my back on the very hard ground. I didn't see the doctor because I was between insurance. I recently went to my GP because the pain has become so severe I can't stand it.
Is it common for T spine pain that starts out as postural to become more localized. I can put my finger on the spot on my spine that hurts. It's not muscle pain and massage makes it 10 times worse. My doctor said she thougth it was related to my autoimmune thyroid disease, but I feel that it is something else. Is it possible to fracture your spine by falling and still be able to function?
