Hi my name is Terri I'm a 25 year old female from Colorado. My doctor suggested a breast reduction and physical therapy along with prescribed pain meds. Anyone who has been on Vicodin knows they work for like 2 days. I asked for something stronger and he said I need to find a pain management doctor and sent me on my way. I did one physical therapy session and I forgot what he said but one of my t discs is sticking out. I start consistent therapy with him next month 2x a week. Both my doctor and PT said my back pain is due to my very large breasts on my small frame. I developed at age 13 and am now a 40 DD and 150 pounds at 5'6". So I'm a bit overweight but even when Im skinny (120-135lbs) my breasts remain large. ANYONE ELSE OUT THERE EXPERIENCING WHAT I AM??!??! Lol! I wear a back brace that pulls my shoulders back and helps tremendously for the few hours I can wear it. Anyways I have constant rigid, tender traps, constant burning between my shoulder blades, and sore low back pain as well. The pain is always there it sucks I had to quit ballet and my job in home health care as a CNA. Now at 25 maybe I'll need a PCP or CNA haha! Anyways new to this site, hello everyone. So glad this forum and site exists. Would love to hear everyone's thoracic stories! (since ALOT of ppl have lumbar pain) Thanks for reading can't wait to hear from you! - Terri
