upper and right side back pain

I have upper back pain that goes to the right side in my ribs for some time. I am assuming the pain is spasms, it get tight and then relaxes but a constance ache. I had a MRI done years ago and it show osteosarthritis and recently went back and had x-ray the same answer. I take pain and antiflammitory meds. It gets so bad I am in tears.

Re: upper and right side back pain

It does sound like you're having some kind of muscle spasms, I don't what the cause is. Have you ask you doctor about going to physical therary or maybe at least giving you a simple muscle relaxer to help when this happens? How long do they last?
