Back problem symptoms

Hi Everyone.
I have had a back problem for a few years now - herniated disc kind-of between the shoulder blades. Anyway, the last couple of months I have been getting tingling sensations in random places for varying durations, and frequently on my face it feels like i have spider webs, and my nose feels like it has been punched all of the time. In the UK, the doctors don't want to know about Backs unless you are peeing your pants. Should I be worried? What can I do?

    Have you had MRI's to identify what Discs are herniated? Generally, (but this is just generally) when you have facial problems, it is more associated with cervical discs. Thoracic (upper) can cause upper back problems. I dont understand that UK medical system or even any non-USA medical system, so I really cant help there.

  • With you being in the UK and me in the US, I'm not sure of everything you can get done. I think I would consult with a doctor about your symptoms though. It may not have anything to do with your back. Regardless, it really should be addressed...
    Good luck and welcome to the forum!
