Pain in Upper Back between shoulders

 Hey everyone,

 So I was hoping to get some answers to my back pain. The pain in located in my upper to middle back between my shoulder blades but it only happens when I turn my spine (ie, keep my legs in one spot but turn my torso). And it’s a strong pain, it even makes it hard to breath. 

 But I don’t know how I hurt it. The pain started about two weeks ago and honestly has gotten worse. I remember one night I slept on my neck wrong and woke up with pain in the back right side of my neck. But my back pain started a day or two after that so I really don’t know if that’s related but it’s worth mentioning. 

 I had my sister crack my back earlier to see if that would help but it didn’t at all. Heat doesn’t help. Ice doesn’t help. 

 Maybe one of you can?




  • Always get a proper Diagnosis from your MD! The pain can be caused by to many things to list. Until then, use ice, and some OTC ibuprofen and see if that helps
