I've been suffering from upper back pain for over two years now. I am and have always been someone who works out and loves to be fit. This all kind of started around the time that I trained for my first 10-mile run. It started with severe trigger points that I would rub on with a lacrosse ball (which hurt like heck) and started spreading across to both sides. It originally was only the left side first.
I feel great when I'm moving and working out but once I'm done everything in my upper and now mid back locks up and aches. I have an office desk job so when I'm at work and driving I'm in pain which is most of every day.
Hot yoga, physical therapy, chiropractors, tens unit, ice and hot packs, all help only when I'm moving or doing it. I can hear my ribs pop around if I squeeze my back shoulder blades together or take deep breaths.
Blood work shows nothing. According to my chiropractor the MRI's show possible herniated discs in cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine but when I showed my MRIs to a spine sergion he looked at them and said my spine looks great and to ignore the chiropractor advice.
Anyone else have this????? Please help!!
