    Hi Mad!

    [SIZE="2"]Yes, I get it too, it's a muscle spasm caused by weak muscles in your back. I also have lower back pain too and just recently did a "lumbar epidural" for the first time. Going to try second one after New Year. I am also going to start very light weight lifting as I have universal in basement too strengthen those muscles around bra line. I am 45 and dropped about 24 pounds since may, slow weight loss, have about 40 more to go. I just statrted a new job in new spa and the pain in back is real bad. I take ultracet, 2 in morning with aleve for the last month and a little better. I am hoping this info helps you, please take care and prayers your pain goes away, hugs Tammy[/SIZE]

    Mandy it might not be a muscle spasm at all. It's good for you to go see a doctor, let them know how long it's been going on. You need to know what's going on in there. I would not ignore it.

    Then if all is well and it's muscle pain, there is plenty that can be done to help you rid of that and strengthen the area going forward.

    Take care. Tammy

    mad maz

    Sorry that you are hurting. None of us should have to be going thru this pain.

    I don't know if it this the same thing, but I had described my pain exactly like you are...."the the bra line...hurts to breathe...around to the ribs", and apparently I was told that is classis thoracic herniation pain (if you have chest area pain too than whammooo...). They did an MRI on my thoracic area (with and without contrast), and I had a good size herniation at T7-T8)...which just (hopefully..please GOD) ended with a thoracic anterior disectomy decompression fusion 4 weeks ago. If you need this please post back so I can help you understand what your recovery entails. ok?

    But lets not get ahead of ourselves...could be a muscle spasm...esp since thoracic herniations are 1 in 12 million you ever get massages?? They are not just for the rich...they are also for the people with pain. My massages cleared up so much of my lower back pain (which I see you have as well). Many times the mid back pain can be referred pain from the lower back as well...I had a very smart doctor once explain this to me. So, it might just be that your lower back is the culprit and causing all this referred pain to the "bra area". Its worth a try. A heating pad is also a savior for a mean muscle spasm.

    And if you need an MRI of the throacic...the "with and without contrast" in the order is important b/c they often miscount the vertebrae and label the wrong disc in that area (this happened causing them to give me my epidural at the wrong level). Just a tip. Its more expensive and takes more time, but at least its correct. Its not just me...its quite commom for a thoracic MRI. Again, a few smarty doctors told me this. Did you ever get an MRI of the lumbar area?? These areas might be worth 1st doctor waited 6 months with me being in extreme pain to order me that thoracic I said, its rare, so they don't expect to see the finding.

    Also...I'd skip wasting a lot of time with my primary, and go see an Orthopeadic specialist...with a spine fellowship (just ask around).

    Good luck, and please let us know your status.

    be well

    I would check with your dr. It could be anything. I was thinking kidneys. Maybe an infection. No use speculating. Hope you feel better.

    Re: Anyone get pain at the middle of your back!!

    Thankyou all so much for your replys, I have been to the doctors 2 times and both say they think it is muscle spasm.

    I think maybe it could still be my gallbladder, I have been having pain under my right and left ribs at the front for 10 months, I have had a scan on my gallbladder back in feb of this year witch come back with no gall stones.

    Maybe I have gallbladder diease!!!

    here in the UK they are so slow, I am to go back in january to see the stomach doctor, If I am still in pain he said they will do a laposcopy( camara in the belly button to see if it is my gallbladder or something else) I would have been in pain for a year buy then....Mandy
