Hi all. I sure hope someone out there can answer this for me.
I had a chiropractic adjustment nearly a year ago and received some type of injury from an over adjustment in my thoracic spine. I missed 10 days of work due to the extreme pain it put me in and literally has bruising show up in my armpit of all places haha. I figured I must have been bruised quite deeply for that to happen.
Anyway, an X-ray showed nothing broken nor a rib out? as another chiropractor suggested it could be. I've never had an MRI on it though.
Roll forward, I still have pain. I've researched as best I know and can't come up with what it could be.
My symptoms are pain and stiffness, occasional muscle spasms, and tightness that seems to come from somewhere around T7, T8, or T9 and radiates around to my stomach?! Yes, my stomach. It feels at times like I am getting stomach flu?!?
What the heck can this be? I now understand why people with chronic pain get depressed. This is really starting to take a toll on my mental and physical health.
Please guide me on what it could be and if an MRI is needed to solve the puzzle. ~X(
