Re: Upper back/rib pain when breathing in
I have the same feeling of being unable to breathe because of pain. I have a heavy feeling in my chest and through my collar bones, too - I also had compression fractures in my T-1,2,3 and C-6,7. I assume this is what is causing your pain. Also, a couple of years ago I went to the doctor and I would have placed money that I had broken my collar bone, but it ended up being that my rib was dislocated. Definitely make sure that they do a thorough examination, and keep on them. Remember you are one of many to a doctor, and you need to keep pressing for your needs.
Good luck, and I truly hope that you get this figured out!!
