Hi, I have been getting burning pain in my thoracic for the past 8 weeks. I have had x-rays which show nothing, which is to be expected. I work in Home Support in the community and my job is very strenuous. I believe the injury was caused by repetitive movements and have been home for the past 2 weeks. I am now back at work and it only took one hour and the pain was back. I am having physio at work and she said that the area T4/T5/T6 are very stiff. It kills when she massages that area. It is not like a sharp pain, just burning and it is driving me crazy. Does anyone else have this problem and if so do you know what is causing it. I would appreciate any advise as I cannot seem to get an answer from my Doctor or the physio. The physio seems to put it all down to degenerative problems. My x-rays show minimal degeneration and nothing else. I have had a herniated disk in the neck about 16 yrs ago, but the pain I have now is in a completely different area. My thoughts are with all of you that suffer from back pain.
