New Back PAIN

I've had a new pain in my upper back. My primary DR says it's fibro muscle related. I have had this daily now for at least a month. It runs across my back. I started back smoking (I know) so I thought maybe it was from using the muscles to inhale? Anybody else have this sorta pain?

Re: New Back PAIN

I have horrible upper back pain since June it runs on both sides but I have a spot on my spine where if you touch it I involuntarily drop to my knees, my legs just give out if I am sitting and it gets touched my stomach muscles spasm. I have had X-rays showing nothing... I am so scared it is something else I am going to request an MRI next. Do you have any sore spots on your spine or does it feel like it is coming from your spine? I am not sure if an xray would show everything as far as herniated or fused disks? I know degenerative disk syndrome runs in my family, maybe it is all muscle related and I'm just a hypochondriac? Can you tell me more about how yours feels? Your not alone in your pain for sure

Re: New Back PAIN

My upper back is my worst pain. Pain anywhere else I can still function with if at a slower pace, but this is the pain that really floors me and has had me crying on more than one occasion. My physio said that this is typical of fibro patients.

Does your upper back pain affect your collar bone and your chest also? Mine radiates

Re: New Back PAIN

Yes and I feel like something is under my shoulder blades and trying to prise them off, if that makes any sense.

Re: New Back PAIN

Definitely makes sense! It's like that for me or sometimes like I'm being squeezed way too tight, like my whole body is in a giant vice grip! Ouchie!
