I am suffering from chronic mid back pain for the last two years.
I used to have pain in my midback when I lifted heavy weights. I experienced this 2-3 time in my earlier in my life. I always avoided lifting heavy weights over my shoulder height (Shoulder press etc.). I am 30 years old now. I was going to the Gym regularly for about 2 years untill late 2011. Around December 2011, I started having sharp pain in the midback on the spine. Since them I have been suffering from this. I went to a GP who said that it was not serious and asked me to use OTC pain killers. Then I went to a neuro surgeon who diagnosed it to be a simple muscle pain and said that it was not serious, He took an X-Ray and gave me some pain killers. I am still suffering from this pain, but it is not a sharp/stabbing pain. Some days, the pain is spread across 2-3 inches along the spine, other days it is spread on the right or left side of the back. I am not sure how to get this cured.
