Hi all, I am currently suffering with upper back pain, and it comes on strong during the night (4am/5am ish) which wakes me up, and the pain spread around to my chest and makes breathing in painful. Once I am up and about I feel better although still pains in the upper back. I saw my GP yesterday who did lots of checks and said I have sprained a muscle but my mobility, movements and strength is all normal. The pains are tight and in waves,
I have never suffered with this sort of pain before.
I also suffer with Fibromyalgia in my shoulders and neck which I have been suffering with for a few years, but this is never that bad (i.e. it doesnt stop me doing things)
For painkillers, I am taking Paracetamol and Codeine.
Any advice, tips etc would be very helpful!
Thanks, Nichola (UK)
