After reading many of your post it is good to know that there are others who understand the the extent of the upper back pain that I and many others suffer from. I have been dealing with this pain for about 4 months now and have had MRI's and pain injections nothing seems to help. I have cried often for relief and I do a lot of praying for some relief the praying seems to help as well as anything the doctors have done. Sometimes I don't think they understand the extent of the pain.

  • Sorry to hear you are having a hard time with it.
    A couple of things that I would suggest based on my personal experiences.
    See a good physiotherapist and have your spine thoroughly checked out.
    Locked, stiff vertebra can cause muscles to react and become very sore.
    Also, errant muscles can cause the spine to bend.
    After that, see a good relief or sports masseuse. Your muscles are bound to be tight and sore, regardless of the pain cause, and you would be very surprised at the huge amount of pain relief a professional massage can bring.
  • Welcome to Spine-Health. There's a lot of great information on this site including doctor written and reviewed articles and videos, and the members on the forum are very friendly, knowledgeable and supportive.

    Most of us can understand back pain, but we have both neckie and backies here, and some are both, like myself.

    You don't give us much information and the more info you can give us the more we'll be able to help you. Have you seen a spine specialist? What does the doc/surgeon/specialist say about your MRI? What levels are the problem?

    Please give us some more info and, like I said, we'll be able to give you more help.

    Take care,
