I have finally decided to post on here after lingering for a while. I have had problems since June with my upper back that just came out of nowhere, I initially thought that it was sleeping in a strange position. I woke up one morning with a pain in my shoulder right under my shoulder blade. It got worse and worse over the weeks until It got to the point where I could not concentrate or do anything. I would get spasms all the time and it hurt so much! I would say the pain was a 7. I went to the doctor and they gave me some pain killers and told me it was most likely just a tear and would heal over time. My shoulder felt as if somebody had shot me in the back and the burning hot bullet was still stuck in my muscle ( that's the best way I can describe it!) And I had a sort of tingling pain surrounding the area.
I took my painkillers flexerol and some others and they helped a bit along with massage sometimes.
This was when I was in Canada during the summer...by the time I got back to the Netherlands in September, my condition still hadn't improved and I went to the doctor here. Unfortunately they don't have flexerol apparently here and my doctor won't send me for an MRI. I had an xray and it turns out I have scoliosis, but that is most likely unrelated. Everything else was apparently fine. My doctor did not see the xray, though, she only saw notes made from the doctor at the hospital where i had the xray. In fact, they did not mention the scoliosis in the xray, i i started going to fysio twice a week, (where i found out ) which improved it to the point that I don't feel the burning bullet anymore, only sometimes, but I still get the deep tingling numb pain which is annoying. My shoulder feels so tight, and my fysio guy said that I have tight subcutaneous tissue ( he said it in Dutch and I don't know how to say it exactly I'm English). I started to feel something new last month - it feels as though some parts of my thoracic spine is bruised. It's very tender to the touch and feels inflammed and swollen. I'm sorry for the rambling but I am just desperate for some kind of information on what this could be or if anyone is going through the same!
