Hello I have OA in both knees neck and early stage in hips a few years ago following xrays I was told that I have degeneration at places all down the spine although at the time apart from neck pain but not all the time my back was not too bad. My question is does anyone get mid back pain from this condition. I have pain both sides more so left side. It seems to be from top and inside of the shoulder blade going down at an angle. The only thing that helps is hot water bottle and pernaton cream helps to take the edge off. Unfortunately I can only take paracetamol. Nsaids and codeine types cause my ibs to flare up. I also have pain and stiffness at waist level both sides. Really pain all over the back at dofferent times.
I have a gp appointment next week. I have so much going on at the moment I really need to sort this out. I should have said the back feels sore to the touch and my husband thinks it may be muscle related. I do suffer from anxiety so that won't help. Thanks.
