Herniations in thoracic area causing breathing problems
I have two herniations in my lower thoracic area and they are worse as of my recent mri shows. Since January I have been having this bad burning up my back and feel like I have broken ribs. More recently I have devoloped a breathing problem. I can not inhale deeply or this sends sharp pain up my back, thru my ribs and up/down my spine. Does anyone else have these issues and what do you do to help it so you can breath?
I was told to try a rib brace but this caused too much pain. I can not stand even wearing a bra any more due to the pain it causes.
As of last night I almost had to go to the er because I really couldn't breath.
I go on May 10th to see my neurosurgeon so I am hoping he will do something to help me. I am on gabapentin, nortriptyline and percocets but they are not really helping with these issues. The meds are helping other nerve issues.
Thank you for any help and I wish all a painfree week.
