Please advise...

Has anyone ever had this....My newest symptom is this strange pain in my upper spine. Kind of feels like that epidural needle going in, when I had my kids. But this is quite high up. I have many other syptoms but not this plus I have not yet been diagnosed but going to other appointments to rule out everything else. I called my doctor right away as this is not going away plus it is quite painful...either someone has a voodoo doll on me or something then. Feels like a painful pressure then goes away. Only to come back when I least expect it.
Your imput would be great, I hope everyone's keeping well.
Thanks so very much.
Lisa B

Re: Please advise...

Hi Lisa,

I am newly diagnosed, but I have the same type of pain in my upper spine. My C-spine MRI showed a lesion at C5-6. The pain feels like it's shooting down my spine, just lower than my shoulders. I occasionally have the same thing in my sternum. Mine feels more like a shock than a pain, though. If that makes sense. Hang in there.

Re: Please advise...

Thank you for that information. I have had those sharp pains lately too! I honestly shout sometimes when they pierce my spine, it just feel slike that of course...I wonder what is going on in my back? Agian it feels like my sister, (the one who dislikes me) has a voodoo doll and is sticking me with it. It has me hoping that's for sure.
Thanks again.
Take care.
