Back annoyance (pricks, tingling, spread all over back?)

Posted , 2 users are following.

I am a 36/m/normal weight. No weight loss or symptoms other than this weird back thing, which is not pain. It's a feeling unlike any other I've felt. It's weird and concerning.

Smoker for 10 years. Quit this week. My back problem feels like there's a boot/shoe being held down on my back, there's pricks/tingling sensations that changes positions throughout the day on my back. But they linger. It's always there. Sitting down/sleeping provides temporary relief. I've had this issue since Xmas, or about 1 month.

Breathing is fine.

A year ago I found an enlarged thyroid on my neck. Got x-ray, doc keeping eye on it. Follow-up next month. Could be connected to back problem, which is not going away. Ibruprofen doesn't do much.
