Hi everybody!! Im hoping that someone can give me some advice that helps!
I'm 25 years old and the last couple of days I've been suffering from excruciating pain in my upper back! The last couple of mornings I woke up thinking that I was having a heart attack!! Thats how bad it was - I couldn't move or sit-up without throwing myself into agonizing pain. Now I know what a knife in the back feels like - thats how it felt - like someone just plunged a knife deep into my back. What worries me is that this pain is also on the left side (which is probably why i woke up thinking i was having a heart attack) - it's basically in the same area my bra strap would meet at the back (on the left side) - and it seems concentrated in that area only - I don't feel any pain at all on my right side and none at all below my neck or even between my shoulder blades.
A friend recommended that I take Robaxisal which is pain medication that targets back pain. It helps - but I understand that this is temporary fix. Any advice?
