Recurring severe pain in upper spine
it has been just over 6 years since I have gotten my spinal fusion. I had pretty bad scoliosis. I recovered really well though and haven’t had much trouble doing anything physical since recovery. However, I have randomly been getting a very sharp and intense pain right around where the fusion begins and it is impossible to ignore. I can’t move or lie down or sneeze without being in severe pain. It’s very isolated and is a very sharp pain. It lasts about a week then goes away. Usually I have only gotten this every few years or so but this year I have gotten it three times and I feel like with every bout of it it continues to worsen. I’m just curious if anyone else has had this happen to them and what they did to manage or to fix it. My X-rays look fine, general doctors at my university clinic are never worried about it when I come in in so much pain. I just do not know what to do. Thanks for listening!
