I am a 71 year old male and have been experiencing pain in my back for 3 - 4 weeks. The pain is like someone stabs me with a hot knife and left the knife in there. It is better in the morning but as the day goes on it gets worse. I have had no trauma to the shoulder or any falls. It came on after I golfed two days in a row but I have been doing that for so many years. I have been seeing a Chiropractor and he does the manipulation, Ultra Sound, Massage, etc. but it does not seem to do much. I have been icing and taking over-the-counter Ibuprofen and it does nothing. I have full range-of-motion in my back and shoulders. I seen a report from Vickie 88 from a couple of years ago and she explained the exact same symptoms I am having now. I wonder if she ever got a cure.
