I am new to this form. I have been having pain the past couple of day's in my back area between my shoulder blade and spinal cord. The pain is not really severe, but it's there. I have only taken over the counter pain killers 2 times and that is to go to bed. It hurts when I move to one side, and turn my neck to the right or left fairly far. It's seems to get worse at night when I lay down, but again not terrible pain. The first night was really bad but the past couple of nights I have been able to sleep with little pain only when I change positions or lift my head. I have been lifting weights doing a program called Body Beast for the past 3 weeks. It suddenly started to hurt on Sunday night and I can still feel the pain now. How do I know if it is either rhomboid muscle or a slipped disc. It has seemed to move around and feels like it is in one spot now, but the other day my entire neck was sore. It is now mostly my shoulder blade but my spine hurts too which worries me. I want to workout again but don't want to cause any further damage. What do you guy's think it sounds like so far? Do you think it would be okay to workout again soon? Today for instance I have had no need for any pain medication, but it is sore, when I turn my neck. I don't really want to go to a doctor unless I have too, at this point the pain does not warrant a visit.
