I posted before.. but a little info.. In Feb 2012 I came up on the edge of a counter while holding my 2yr old. I started experiencing mid back pain and went to see my PCP. She recommended PT or chiro. I started seeing the chiropractor a couple times a week to once for 2 months with no help. I went back to the dr, was referred to pain management who said there was nothing wrong and my pain was being exaggerated by the degenerated discs in the lumbar spine. I switched insurance groups and saw another dr who was finally willing to listen. My x-rays showed nothing. I was given a type of anti-inflammatory shot several times with a little relief that stopped working about 10days after.
Now, about a month ago my pain had doubled in the past couple of months. At T7-T8 I have severe tenderness to the touch. I cannot sit against something hard or have anyone touch that point directly on the spine. The muscles around it, and my ribs feel like a weight is putting pressure. It wraps to the sternum.. I wake up in pain, feel no relief all day, and go to sleep in pain. I'm so sore, stiff.. I got an approval on the MRI and finally felt hope. I opened the results yesterday and cried. It showed nothing. How is it possible?! How is it so painful to touch, so much pain everyday and the MRI showed nothing? I feel hopeless and embarassed to even call my doctor. I feel like I should see a specialist but what would he say? .. I'm looking for advice, I never see anyone say they are sore to the touch like this so I'm just really confused.. and I'm wondering why it's getting worse.. any advice please..
