Hi my name is paul and I am a 33 year old Male. I have had what started as upper back pain for around a couple of years now and dont know where to go next or what to do. I feel like I am at the end of my tether and am mentally now broken.
I could not pin point where the pain started but only believe it could have been one of two things. firstly and more likely this I had a pretty hard fall in november 2017 where I fell down my stairs and caught myself on my banister with my right hand, I didnt feel any immediate pain but a few weeks after I started to feel in and around my right shoulder blade some pain, I continued to lift weights and could push through the pain for a few months but that gradually got worse so I stopped weights. when doing any form of cardio it would produce the same pain making me want to bend over as felt like heartburn then in my chest.
I no longer feel this pain so much as I no longer exercise and havent for over a year now. my back is almost permanently hot now and for the past month I have had pins and needles in my right hand, predominantly fingers.
I have tried resting, stretching, seen specialists including chiropractor, physio and osteopath but nothing has really seemed to help. I had an mri on my right shoulder blade but it didnt show anything, I struggled to complete the full mri as I am claustrophobic but was in there for around 25 minutes. does anyone know if you are able to have an mri and be sedated? I have also had an xray on my spine, back and chest which showed nothing along with blood tests which were also negative.
my only other potential cause may have been through stress as I lost two babies through miscarriage at 12 and 21 weeks which was tough emotionally for me the support I had to show my partner plus had limited support from friends and family.
can someone please help or suggest something
thanks in advance
