I am completely new and just joined this site. I have finally found a site which covers what I have! I am looking for any help or advice that anyone might have. Two months ago I injured my upper back and have been off ever since. Been to hospital several times, GP, chiropractor and now wonder what to do. Had chest x-Ray, bloods, ultrasound scan. I got admitted to hospital with severe chest pains, could not sleep properly, upset stomach, feeling sick sometimes when I eat (but not thrown up). No energy and a lot of fatigue. I tried to start back at work this week but the last two days I feel a lot worse. Got an emergency appointment at the Chrispractor today who has now writing to the doc and suggesting more x-Rays. I have decided to go and see an osteopath who has been strongly recommended to me and I am now considering getting an MRI done. I am 52, lost my wife to cancer in 2011 and I am now trying to step forward with the rest of my life but I have to confess that I am worried that I have something more serious. I have two regions in my thorastic spine that are giving me a lot of pain - one area seems to have settled down but the lower disc has kicked off very strongly over the last two days. I have never had problems with my back before but now I feel I am lost in trying to get this properly identified. I do not know if I have damaged discs yet but I need to try and get to the bottom of this! Thanks for any help or advice.
