Can someone please tell me what would cause back pain almost in the centre/left? On Friday 18th July when it started, the pain was so powerful I could feel it through the front of my chest. I called NHS Direct and told them as they would tell me the best way to treat it, unless they think an ambulance is required. An ambulance was despatched to me by NHS Direct operator.
After going to hospital, they did the obvious tests thinking it was the heart, but that was ruled out. The hospital then sent me on my way. Without a diagnosis of pain relief.
Now I still have pain and find it hard to sleep at night. I do have two different prescription pain medication in the house but I can only get relief if I double up the dose, simply because the pain relief is for neuropathic nerves.
could it be I might have had a disk which has come out and gone back in, in a split second? One last thing is that I do have arthritis of the upper back/neck.
