thoracic nerve pain treatment

This is my first post on the board so just a little bit about my problem first. Had really painful lower back for about 2 years but worked through it and have no lower back pain anymore.

Unfortunately I know have an intense burning pain under and between my shoulder blades, having tried lots of different treatments with no success I went to a different physio just before Christmas and he said my pain all came from nerve pain. I dont know if he means a trapped or pinched nerve but I think he does.

Just looking to see if anyone has had success working through this and whats the best way to manage and treat it.

I know I have been quite vague but any help will be much appreciated. I am going out of my mind.

    Cervical stenosis, so far avoided surgery
  • I had the intense burning pain between my shoulder blades but it was coming from my cervical spine not thoracic..You need to see your family dr & tell him/her your symptoms and see what they suggest you do...Are there any other symptoms you have? Have you had any diagnostic testing, MRI or CT-scan?

    Fell on ice a week ago, back hit sharp edge of retaining wall. Have had extreme pain in the T6-T8 area of back. Orthopedic doctors in our town do not see patients for back, gave us a number for two doctors at hospital (neuro-surgeons) called, they won't see patients without a Dr. referral and catscans and MRIs, gave a number for re-hab doctors at hospital, can't see for two weeks- frustrating! How do you see a Doctor for a back injury in a town of 76,000? unbelievable! Called a sports rehab/chiropractic and wow yes they will see today. X rays were hard to read-but didn't think there was fracture. Not absolutely sure. Did some minimal manipulation and ultra-sound 2 days ago a bit better but 2nd day back to extreme pain. There is swelling on right side midback that does not got away with ice, looking a bit more swollen- have iced for a week. Any thoughts where to proceed. Been using back support wrap in that area.

    Nothing I did got that stabbing burning pain between shoulder blades under control until I got ESI that targeted annular tear. The worst of it is gone now in that area
    Do your due dilegence, trust you know your body and question everything if it does not fit. Advocate for yourself and you will be suprised what will be revealed trusting your body and instinct.
