Strange new symptom

Ever since about 3 years ago, I have had increasingly worse thoracic back pains. With in the last year, the moderate pains have turned into more sharp pains. Almost every time I go to the doctor, they tell me that there is nothing wrong and that they can give me some pain killers and muscle relaxers to help. The pain killers do absolutely nothing, and the muscle relaxers relax every muscle but my thoracic back area. Recently I have thought that I may be having these pains due to a possible thyroid condition, for my mother has hypothyroid disease. I am still waiting for an appointment at my school to get my blood tested.
Anyways about my new symptom...
I was in my room this morning, laying down and watching tv. I laid my head to one side and suddenly got this really weird feeling in my whole body. It was like I was light headed and I had butterflies in my stomach and all the sudden my whole body felt really stiff and tingly and I felt like I couldn't move. This only lasted for about 10 seconds, but it was really weird. Anyone else experience this before or know what just happened to me?

    And welcome to spine Health forums. I don't have thoracic problems mine are lumbar. But I would encourage you to see a spinal specialist. A Neuro or orthopedic surgeon. It sounds to me like your seeing a g.p.
    Good luck, Jim
