Im really having a rough time at the moment and unable to sleep.
Im kept awake by this nasty pain in the middle of my upper back. It goes on and on when im laid in bed trying to sleep nd has started to go into my chest. The pain in my chest is like stabbing. Im not worried that its heart related as the stabbing is not there when im not laid down. Im thinking its has to be coming from either soft tissue, bone fracture or bone spurs, from my lungs or from my stomach area. The problem is getting anything done about it. Iv an appointment to be seen at the muscular skeletol department in about three weeks..but what if the pain in coming from a very different cause. My doctor referred me there because i requested an untra sound scan on my shoulders and soft tissue in upper back, i was told i had to be seen by them first.
I have cervical spondylitis, spine degeneration and OA of the whole spine.
I dont know what to do next, nothing relieves the pain and im so exhaused all the time.
Has anyone expereinced anything like this?
