Im very unsure of what to do, I was injured when I stepped up thinking I had cleared a steel beam, I had no pains for 2 days the when doing my regular routine i started having sharp pain while breathing inhaling and exhaling. I went to a spine clinic they referred me to a physical therapist, I have constant pain on both sides of my t9-t10. after months of PT still the same pain. Had exrays and mri done they all come back as clear...? Im not on pain meds, just want to get to the source of the problem..any ideas ?


  • I would get another opinion. When were your last MRIs? Is your pain in your upper or lower chest? Who said it was in the t9 area? I ask because sometimes when we say too much to doctors they look in only one area and don't look for other sources of problems.

    I also am wondering why if your tests showed nothing they sent you for PT. What was the purpose? If your spine is fine I would have gone to a pulmonary doctor. You may be linking your accident with pain that came on 2 days later when they have nothing to do with each other.
