Back pain is back...!

Hi everyone, well... my upper back pain is back again badly. The pain feels more like bone pain rather than muscle pain... The pain is along the upper spine. No neck pain though. It comes and goes. But when the pain comes, it lasts very long. What could upper back pain be usually caused by? I do have a history of scoliosis but it's mild. Bed rest, applying those gel to make the pain go away or even stretches don't help! The pain comes even when I'm sitting... I can practically be doing anything or not doing anything at all and the pain comes... any ideas or comments why is this happening?

Re: Back pain is back...!

how long has it been since seen your doc? you might have a oinched nerve. i have this and mine is both compressed spinal cord and compressed nerves.
i agree nothing and anything can cause it. take a long hot tub bath, light some candles, listen to soft classical music and relax. and see you doc or call them to let them no whats going on and what you should do. i to have mild scoliosis and that usally doesnt cause pain, so the doctors say but it can. it might be something else. i to have bone pain instead of muscle pain and its very un nerving. just destress and go to a quite place and meditate.

It's probably time to give your spine specialist a call and find out what is going on in there. Could be a bulging disc causing all of this.

Re: Back pain is back...!

I just seen the orthopedic surgeon 2 days ago. He said that it might be some strain on my back and sent me for physiotherapy. Since I'm a subsidised patient, I see different doctors everytime I go; I don't think the doctors will really understand me like that...

Anyway, I am also seeing a chiro. I have also hyperlaxity joints that I think could complicate things a bit. After treatments, I will start to hurt not long later. I just hope I don't get worse when I get older.
