Just to preface, I have an appt. with my pcp tomorrow PM.
About 2 weeks ago, I started to have spasms in the muscles behind my right shoulder blade. As time went on, it travelled to my right rib cage, central abdominal pain, then to my left rib cage. It hurts tremendously, like I have broken ribs.
To my recollection, I've done nothing to cause this.
When I take a deep breath, it hurts.
About 2 hours ago, I slipped on a 4 ft. hill, right on my backside and scraped my foot. No biggie on the scrape, but am concerned about my back.
Long story short, I had an L3-L5 fusion almost 2 years ago. It seems to have been successful, but now I'm concerned about my my upper vertebrae.
I know no one here can diagnose, but does this sound like thoracic back problems, or something else?
