I'm writing this as a sort of last resort - I've constantly been going round in circles.
I am a fit, active, 24 year old male. For, roughly, the past 2 years I have been experiencing terrible mid-back pain when waking up in the morning. I have no pain whatsoever during the day - only in the mornings. Over the past 2 years I have changed mattresses and regardless of what I sleep on, the pain is intense. Over the past 5 months - 98% of the mornings, I will wake up but whats worse is this.... I wake up and every time I breathe in, everything tightens and I find it difficult to breathe.
It honestly felt like my ribs were bruised as opposed to muscular. I went to the hospital over a year ago - they did an X ray, saw no problem and told me to see a physic. I went to see a physic and they saw no muscular imbalance and said they didn't know what it could be? I now live in Dubai and healthcare isn't top form here - I also went to see a neurologist here who didn't even look at my back and told me to carry on 'stretching'?
I hate the hospital / doctors etc so would only go when the pain is excruciating. Every single morning I am waking up with a 'bruised' feeling in my mid back / lower ribs - which tightens whenever i breathe and i struggle to move. I have to gently ease myself out of bed and walk around a bit.
On top of this - my vision keeps going blurry (same duration as back pain). I don't need to wear glasses - went to the opticians and they said I had good eyesight. However, my eyes every couple of months will both go blurry and honestly feels like the start of a stroke! I have had uveitis in the past also.
Does this sound familiar to everyone? I have no idea what to do. X rays / physio / neurologist has been a waste. People keep trying to pass me off to someone else. Should I get an MRI scan done?
