Why is heat not helping my back pain?

Does anyone know why heat won't help with back pain?. Think cause is strained muscles in upper back. Tried hot showers, heating pad etc. Help!!

That is an impossible question to answer without knowing your history...medical and personal. However, just off the top of my head the pain may be referred pain from Gallbladder problem. This is a mystery for the doctor. Good luck.

I can't answer the 'why', but maybe I could offer an alternative? Try ice packs - they work wonders for back pain.

Good luck!
