I found this site after doing a search regarding back pain. After reading several of the comments I've become impressed by the helpful nature of those posting. Now I'm off to the Thoracic forum for some specific information. I have a herniated disc between T-2 & T3, a nasty place from what I've been told. Have a great day, all. :H

  • I'm like you found this site when doing research for my back problems. When I saw the from Iowa, just had to come and say hello.
    I am originally from Iowa, born and raised farm girl, but now live in Tennessee, and have been for going on 22yrs. Good Luck to you with your problems.
  • That IS an odd area for a herniated disc! Where you in an accident?
  • We're really not sure what the initial cause is (was). The doctors are calling it "degenerative" because I can't recall any recent significant incident that could have caused it. I was involved in a motorcycle collision about 6 years ago, but had no notable injuries from it. What ever the cause, the MRI clearly shows the herniated disc. Now I need to learn how to adjust and deal with it. That may be a challenge, but I can easily point out others who would be glad to change places with me.

  • Hi there! I'm from Nebraska, so we're almost neighbors!
    I hope you find some answers and relief soon. I am having thoracic issues too and I had an epidural in my neck Wednesday. Doctor was hoping the shot would help pain between shoulder blades. He said the shoulder blade area was a really hard area to treat with injections. I don't really know why. Anyway the anethesilogist injected the drugs into my neck for thoracic pain. Seems kind a weird. Good Luck!
