I am a 17 year-old male.
For the last 1-2 years I have randomly felt a sharp stabbing type of pain which is located directly next to my middle spine. It's nothing that makes me unable to move and it goes away after I crack my back, I also noticed that I only feel this pain when seated with poor posture as I can't remember anytime it has happened whilst standing up or sitting straight. The pain goes away after I crack my back and I don't see this again until it strikes randomly again which may be a month, week or a day.
I am on my computer with terrible posture..slouched over my desk and often leaning to one side, often my left, I do this for about 4 or more hours a night and on weekends, maybe even 8 or so hours with very little break which is why I never saw help for the pain as I thought it was just posture related.
My mother has Scoliosis and my aunty has rheumatoid arthritis which is worrying me a little bit but most of all I am making myself sick to the stomach that I have a spinal tumor and Google doesn't seem to help me at all which is why I decided to post here
The problem is that I have had a pain in the same spot, directly next to my middle spine (Thoracic) there has been a very small pain, not really stabbing but more coming and going..I do feel as if it is much worse when I'm thinking about it which is most of the time, I do have severe anxiety. This has been going for about 1 week now but I think it is getting progressively better.
Has anyone got any information on what this may be, or if you have experienced this in your life before...I understand that the computer has almost definitely brought me into a bad posture, as I find myself always slouching when seated.
Thankyou all in advance
