Burning spine pain

Hi all, for the past 3 weeks I've been having this burning sensation on my spine (just under my shoulder blades)which is immediately followed by unbearable stomach pain and dry heaving.  Doc has taken X-rays, and blood work, so far nothing conclusive.  So far Gabapentin has worked best for the spine pain, flexorol and meloxicam had no noticeable effects.  I consider myself to be very active, and used to general back pain/soreness but this is unbearable.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    welcome to spine-health

    there are no medical professional to give you medical help but we are here for support if you need that.

    you do not mention an mri and this will show far more than an x-ray, relating to discs and nerves.

    gabapentin is a drug used for nerve pain, so an mri seems a sensible route to work out what is happening on the inside.

    i have added two links below to help new members with information and these also contain the forum rules.  there is lots of material to research that will give you the power of knowledge.
