Hello, I'm new to this website so just bare with me!
About one year ago, when I was 16, I pulled some muscles in the upper left hand side of my back, I still don't know how.
But I didn't go to the doctor for about a month while I had the pain, I only went when I lost the ability to use my left arm effectively. I know that was pretty dumb but I had a fear of doctors and hospitals at the time and my anxiety didn't help when it came to talking to people. The doctor gave me some muscle gel which relieved the pain and allowed the muscles to heal.
But now I am cracking my upper back around 10-20 times a day, some times more, and more recently it's become rather painful to do so. It like if I don't crack it then it hurts to move around. There's also some pain towards the centre and right hand side of my back. This all started only after I pulled my muscles, I never had any problems before hand.
I don't know what it is and I have no idea what I need to do about. Do you have any ideas of what I could do at home or who I should go and see about it?
Thank you for all replies in advance! And sorry if I takke time to reply - still figuring out how to use this.
