Re: Muscular Upper Back Pain

Time for an update.

My initial back injury is unrelated to all my other symptoms. I do not have sciatica but still get a sciatic sensation in my left leg. Still have issues with my left arm being numb with tingling fingers.

Appears it is probably diabetic neuropathy, peripheral neuropathy or something like that. All scans are clear of anything. No disc issues have shown up on any scans from any angle.

Symptoms are permanent & I'm now dealing with the pain as best I can.

Thanks all

In this case, a MRI will not provide more information than was provided by the CT scan. Does using a heating pad make it feel better?

Re: Muscular Upper Back Pain

A heat pack always helped. The initial area where the injury was is no longer painful. It just took many months to heal.

My new issue is my left arm. Intermittent dull aches in upper & lower arm but never at the same time. Scapula is also sore. As all scans have been clear it's looking like a nerve issue. Certain positions are better than others & a heat back on my scapula helps.

Re: Muscular Upper Back Pain

Hi There,
I too am having upper back tightness. I was wondering if for you this also causes a bit of shortness of breath? I feel like my upper back is so tight and knotted up that it makes it hard to breathe normally.
