    Thoracic region pain

    Male 21 , height : 5"8 weight 80kg. India
    Hello, i am having back pain in my thoracic region since 2 years..i visited my orthopedist before the pandemic and was under his observation for almost 3-4 months, some blood tests I don't know the names but i can tell the names of factors written on the tests(uric acid,
    rheumatoid factor , cbc, crp , esr, hlab 27) were done all were normal, hlab 27 was negative , xray was normal too and so was the MRI.No change in the pain. I joined physiotherapy(when lockdown was lifted) , they didn't find any abnormalities in my back , did it for 2 months the pain got less but it never vanished. Electro therapy didn't work they just did it for 2 days and then stopped. I had to stop the physiotherapy due to certain reasons and so i joined a gym which was near my house i did almost the same exercises which i did in my physiotherapy center. The pain got decreased since i started the physiotherapy but it dropped to a certain point and stopped also whenever i used to get up in the morning it was difficult for me to relax my spine, i had to stay upright for few mins/hours this thing got decreased after the physiotherapy but again never vanished. What could be the cause? Also what should be my next step in the treatment? Haven't been to the gym since 2 months due to my exams plus i got infected by covid and now it's a lockdown here so all the gyms are closed. The pain has increased a bit since then.

    I'm sorry that you are having so much back pain Ashwat. With Covid lockdowns it's so frustrating to try and get any treatment. As far as what the next step should be, I would think your orthopedist would be the best person to ask. Just wanted to reach out and wish you well.

    Thoracic level spine disease is considered very rare because the rib cage helps to protect the thoracic spine. I have been told that when it is present, there almost always is some sort of underlaying condition present that is affecting. I have severe spinal degeneration with the actual origin of my disease centered on T6. It took forever for my doctors to figure out that my neck and back pain was coming from my t-spine! My first cervical surgery was in 2006, yet it took 6 more years before the medical team following me determined that I had Scheuermann’s Kyphosis, a vertebral deformity that causes the whole spinal column to pitch forward.
    I wish I had known in the beginning to push my providers to investigate the underlying cause of my problem. I think if I had known I would have had better results. I encourage you to ask not only what is wrong in your back, but WHY there is something wrong! That knowledge is priceless and can help you make the best decisions regarding your care.
    Best of luck to you!
