Question Pain in Upper Back Right Side of Spine

I've been experiencing minor back pain for the better part of three months. It's on the right side of my spine from about mid-back to about the trapezeus muslce. It's more of a muscular discomfort than a sharp pain, and it tends to be incredibly sore. I'm a writer, so unfortunately I'm on the computer most of the day. I think this is what started it, but now it never seems to completely go away even if I'm not on the computer for a couple of days. A friend that's in physical therapy school gave me a massage and said that my ribs were out of place (or something like that), but she didn't give much other advice. Any suggestions. I would love to start treating this before it gets any worse.

Thanks.

See a doctor, you need to have this diagnosed as to whether it is muscular or disc related. I had the pain in the same area & it was a herniated disc.

Re: Pain in Upper Back Right Side of Spine

I agree with lori j, you really need to get it checked out by a doctor. It could be several different things and you can't afford to do any guessing when it comes to back pain. You could cause yourself to really have a lot of problems. So get on that phone and get an appointment. Good Luck!
