burning upper back question

Hello, well i got about 3 hours of sleep, that makes 6 hours for the last 2 days. This is my next question....i have a burning sensation between my shoulder blades if i sit, stand, do dishes, fold laundery etc for any period of time. The mri was done on LS. Could there be a problem higher up?

Re: burning upper back question

The chances of upper thoracic pain being caused by lumbar spine abnormalties is not strong. Do you have any low back or leg symptoms?

I only say not strong because in some unusual circumstances it can occur, but typically there are low back or leg symptoms as well.

More information would help.

Re: burning upper back question

yes, mri showed l5/s1 bulge........left toes numb.......horrible sciatic pain in both legs. I had an appt with a nursepr yesterday and she said that pt was all i needed. There is also a note that there is swelling around the tissues of L1 to L4. (atleast that is how i read it).
I can bend, twist, lift, without pain...but to sit, stand, wash dishes....the area between my shoulder blades burn.....
I am seeing a spine Dr on 5/16. I just hope i can hang on, because the np would not refill any pain meds. I have a feeling i will be in the er before that appt.
I have posted before...yesterday...there is more info there...
