Ever since I had my son a few years ago I remember occasionally getting sharp, stinging pains right at the top of my back, just under my neck on one side, it'd happen when I bent over to pick him up or change his bottom. They were very few and far between, but regular enough for me to remember them, and always in the exact same spot.
For the past few weeks they've started happening more frequently. It happens several times a day now, and although the pain doesn't last for too long, maybe a few minutes, it's excruciating. I'll bend down to get groceries off a shelf at the shops, or just turn my head a certain way and there it goes. It's so hard to describe the feeling.. it's so sharp and stabbing. It doesn't feel like a muscle cos I've never felt anything like this before. And normally if I had a pulled muscle or something it'd hurt if I rubbed the area, but it doesn't hurt if I touch the spot at a time when it isn't stinging.
Has anyone ever had a similar problem? If so, what caused it? I would like some sort of idea what it may be. If it persists I will see someone about it, but I don't know who the hell I'd go to!
I appreciate any input you can give me
