Avatar n tn Do you have any neck pain, or history of neck pain?
Avatar n tn My right thumb tip is now feeling very strange almost numb and tingly. I get constant back spasms in my upper back and up to my neck. I am soooo completely fed up and starting to think i will be like this forever. Doc has suggested a scan but thinks again nothing will show up. I am so fed up. 30 years old and unable to pick things up and go to the gym as gets to painful and starts spasming again.
Avatar n tn Hello, sorry to hear about your back pain. I had upper back pain that ended up radiating down my arm and back and forth. I thought everyone would think I had gone crazy stating that the pain traveled. Also I had burning sensations and tingling. Turned out to be a pinched nerve in my neck C6&C7. When this happens there are tiny nerves that go down your back and down your arms. depending on which nerver produces the different locations of pain.
Avatar f tn Haha its been a total life saver for me! Low back pain (sciatica) neck pain, and probably the best was My upper back pain because of my ribs. And they are used to treating pregnant women. It's safe and they use a pregnancy pillow to do adjustments if your belly is too big.
Avatar f tn Especially a Burning/ cold/ pain going down UNDER my arms. Besides the obvious lower part of my back My neck especially a spot on the left of my neck that hurts/ has a strong ***** and a place in the middle/lower part of my back that zaps me with pain if I lean my torso out or in and at times it's hard to breathe. My hands have spazzed out on me, it starts with my thumb and my whole hand gets numbish & tingly and my hand jerks in like I've stuck my finger in a light socket.

Avatar f tn I have been dealing with mid to upper back pain for over 8 months. I have been seeing a D.O and after months of maniuplation with really no relief we finally we able to get an mri. The MRI didn't really show anything significant except a slight bluging disc in I think my T-4. I was on pain meds hydrocodone 500/5 1 a day and valium 10mg-30mgs. I am not taking the hydro anymore and am tapering off of the valium, now at 10mg, My question is why am I in pain? The pain migrates some.
237053 tn?1258828426 as you know my 'upper torso' - esp. neck/shoulder areas have been the worst pain areas for me since the start of all this - the painful area you describe is something I often have - I hope you have some 'good days' soon - hopefully Dr.O. will be able to see you soon.
Avatar f tn Hello~ It sounds like you have some pinched vertebrae in your upper back and neck region. I would highly recommend seeing a chiropractor. He/she will take some x-rays and be able to tell what areas are needing attention. After a few treatments, you should start feeling better. Hope you feel better soon.
Avatar m tn That you feel the pain when you move your neck but have no pain with breathing is most consistent with a muscular cause. This type of pain would almost never accompany bronchitis or any other disease within the lungs themselves, including pneumonia. If a muscular pain, it is probably related to an awkward sleeping position and should subside spontaneously, quickly.
Avatar f tn Hey girl I have a slipped disk in my upper back by my neck and I take Tylenol extra strength, two pills. It's worked for me so far! Unfortunately there's not much we can take during pregnancy :( talk to your doc though I know there's some meds you are allowed to take for that if Tylenol isn't strong enough!
Avatar n tn Does anyone know what a anterior compression is or what it means that L5 is a transitional vertebral body ? I have told my doctors that most of this upper back pain started when I was hanging drywall overhead and I was balancing it on my head. I felt an enormous pain and I have hurt since. Even though I told them this, no one has ordered X-ray or MRI of cervical region. Should this be done ? Pain is debilitating today. Has made me sick to my stomach three times.
4703993 tn?1379768388 the lower back pain and leg pain, but within the last 2-3 weeks I have been experiencing severe mid to upper back pain along with the daily headaches and neck pain. Anyone else experience the mid-upper back pain or is this totally un-related the Chiari?

1090423 tn?1286287650 What comes to mind is a neck or upper back injury causing the pain in the head and neck and it may be pinching on a nerve that is causing calf pain. An MRI of the upper back/neck might be in order. I know my back pain radiates down the back of my leg and calf. It is just a thought. I'm not sure why antibiotics will make your pain worse. I hope you can at least get something for pain in the interim. Do antiinflammatories work on you?

2008980 tn?1327903117 when I was 7 years old, I did a tumor elimation surgery in my back head and neck (the tumor was in below my brain). any way I 23 years old now. I was doing MRI every year to check that I am still ok, but I stopped 6-7 years ago. right around that time, I started getting pain in my upper back lower neck. now I don't really know if it related to the surgery, but it is a strong pain in the muscle. it gets so hard and it starts to burn.
670782 tn?1242826727 Has anyone experienced mid to upper back and shoulder pain after a total hyst? It comes and goes and it radiates to my neck and shoulders and my arms feel weak. I get a headache with it. It goes away as fast as it comes..
Avatar m tn I am not also experiencing upper back pain on the side of my injurred shoulder, and occasional pain that radiates down into the elbow (more like my lower tricept) and into my hand on the same side. Furthermore, I have started experiencing symptoms in my right shoulder that are similiar to the symptoms that I first noticed with my left shoulder over a year and a half ago. The injuries are really starting to concern me, especially since the physiotherapy and massage program did not seem to help.
