Ok, so I'm a 24yo female and fused T3 through L4. Have been for about 11 years. I've been suffering with chronic pain from a failed surgery since about 2005. Spine has degenerated rapidly and has continued to twist in the hardware, etc etc.
Anywho, yesterday I stretched and felt a grinding/crunching feeling around T6-T8ish area and have been in excruciating pain since. That area plus like 3 ribs on that side are extremely tender and when I stand up it feels like my spine is made of cinder blocks in that area. 24 hours later and I can hardly move and I'm super nauseous from the pain. Just vomited up my dinner
So not thrilled about that.
I guess my question is, has anyone experienced anything similar and how long would you wait on going to see someone about it? I'm thinking now, but my lack of health insurance and my mother's advice are saying 'man up'.
Thank you for your time!
