I have been suffering with back pain between my shoulder blades for over 10 years, have had all the xrays, MRI, rheumatology - nothing.
In the last week it has been unbearable and stopped me doing everything.
I have weakness in my legs, pins and needles and numbness in both my hands and feet , my body feels wreaked any idea's

  • I have the same upper back pain, everything comes back normal, but it burns and I cannot stand it some days. It is horrible. I have been having this pain for over 7 years.I was just in the hospital for 3 weeks (unrelated to my back) and now that back pain is worse than ever, almost like I was laying in bed too long, and now the few muscles that worked are not working anymore. The pain is horrible day and night. I cannot stand for very long, it is almost like my upper body is too heavy for me to support??
