I thought that it was an early sign of pneumonia since I have had it before. But I am not realy sick other than the pain I have. I have had this feeling before, upper back pain behind my left rib. And it is tender when I move certain ways and breath real deep. Well even though it is not a good thing at least I can rule out pneumonia and I feel like I have more control by knowing what it is.
I am having severe back pain in my upper back, sometimes radiating through into my chest. This pain started about three weeks ago, and has gotten steadily worse. Muscle relaxers do not seem to be of much benefit. Even pain medication does not relieve the pain. The only time I am at ease is while lying down. Whenever I try to turn over or move after resting, the pain reappears. Turning my head and breathing deeply is painful. The pain is not directly over my spine, but to the side.
I have been to 2 different doctors and had an MRI and there seems to be no cause for my severe burning pain in my upper back in my scapula area. The pain meds do not even take all the pain away and the Dr. says I have a pulled muscle and wants me to do physical therapy. My MRI says I have C4-C5 Subtle disc bulge, C5-C6 Unicate hypertrophy and C6-C7 Disc bulge. The Dr. said my MRI was fine but my report says different. Why would he say I am fine when I am clearly in severe pain...
I've had pain in my chest and back (thorasic spine area) that feels like a band of pain that is constant. Been diagnosed for lack of anything specifici - Chronic Pain. I'm on heavy doses of narcotics to control the pain just to get through the days and nights. My mother and daughter have both heard of some heart related issues specific to women that they feel this could be. Nothing has shown up on any tests - heart, gastro, etc.

For the last couple of years, I have had slight pain in the lower part of my chest at the back. During the winter months I have a debilitating cough which will last from september to about april. The cough is mostly dry and once I start I can't stop, especially first thing in the mornings. The pain in my chest has increased over the last couple of days, which is my concern. I have frequent night chills and sweats, am experiencing flu-like symptoms and often have a raised temperature.
In a reversal of the phenomenon of certain lung diseases, particularly acute bacterial pneumonia, it presents with upper abdominal pain, certain abdominal disorders may present with pain in the lower chest; this confusing situation is most apt to occur with cholecystitis, peptic ulcer disease, and acute pancreatitis.

I'm having chest pains again!! I'm concerned because I haven't been lifting weights and my chest pain had gone away from May. I've been feeling a bit congested and have been sneezing; maybe I have a cold? I've had sharp pain in the left breast (same spot as the other two times), dull pain in my right breast, some random, dull/light pains in my arms and left thigh, and some achiness in my lower ribs.
About 4-5 says back I was having chest pain in between and an eneasy feeling. The pain was mostly on thr right upper side of chest. But somtimes it was moving to left side bottom, sometimes in the back(roughly centre of the back). The pain was not very severe but I had that eneasy feeling. I also had some pain the neck in between though it did not last for very long any time. I had walked to one of the ER they did EKG, blood pr etc, even chest x-ray. They did not find anything.

This lasted about 3 days. I did not eat. Since then, I have had this pain in my upper left abdomen and it radiates to the back. My stool is light. Don't know if it is considered clay colored. I went to my primary and he suggested gallbladder, even though the pain was in the left. He did blood work and ultrasound and said everything looked. The pain came on so bad the one day I called 911 cause I thought I was going to pass out and I was home alone with my daughter.
It is like a combination of a spasm and something heavy crushing the bones of my upper back and chest. When it happens I cannot lay down or the pain increases, the only position that helps is straight up in a chair with my neck supported. Like the rest of you, I cannot bear to lay in bed some nights, and I usually have to get up and stand in a hot shower one or two times each night just to loosen up or stop the spasm. This started about a year ago, right after my father died.
Pain in the back and left side of spine could be due to a referred pain from abdomen like stomach ulcers, acidity, pancreatitis, or ectopic pregnancy or from the chest like in heart attack, pericarditis, pleuritis, pneumonia, pulmonary embolus, and aortic dissection. Pain in the back and right side of spine could be due to gall stones, duodenal ulcer and liver infection. Hence an ultrasound, liver function test and an upper GI endoscopy is needed for diagnosis.
There could be several causes of the symptoms you are having including a muscle pull, injury or trauma at the site, chest infection, gall stones, etc. You should apply some local pain relief medications, take some oral pain relief medications, maintain a proper posture throughout the day, try some warm compresses. You could take some antireflux antinausea medications and see if they help with your symptoms - this could be pain due to reflux or GERD.
Mostly the pain is in the left upper abdomen. nowadays i can feel the pain around the chest. I did urea breathe test to check for bacteria and there is no bacteria now but still i feel the pain in left upper abdomen which also radiates around my chest. The doctor said that the gastric is still there which is giving this pain. But the pain is continuous. I dont feel the pain only when i lie down flat. I also dont have any prblm while sleeping.
