27 year old male w/ right side missing pec major. I am assuming it is polands, but with no hand deformities. As of the last year I am experiencing severe spine, hip, and back pain on the right side. I also am a carpenter and push saws, drill, dig, hammer, etc. while using my right hand. I have roughly 10 years in my line of work and now am dependent on strong pain killers to function. Any thoughts or ideas...

I have polands syndrome too (no hand involvement) recently I have been getting quite bad back/shoulder pain. I mentioned to my physio about the polands and maybe it was caused by that. According to her because I was born with it my body would have learnt to compensate and it is unlikely that it is the cause. Apparently it's a stress injury related to the repetitive nature of my work. Also taking a lot of pain killers over here, I know how you feel.
