hi all
for about 2 weeks now i have had a strange feeling in my back (mid shoulder blade level, slightly to the left side) it just feels like someone is leaning on it, just a slight pressure, it is very frustrating. when the physio took a look at it for me she pressed hard around that area and found a particular part that was painful when she pushed down (dont feel that pain unless pushed hard) she said there is no visable lump but can feel something deeper down, she feels it is muscle related! it is driving me crazy, like someone has there hand on my back continuosly

  • I agree, sounds muscle related. Try putting a hot pack on your back. It may be caused by stress. I see from another thread your husband is about to have surgery. Hot baths or hot packs may help. You can also put a tennis ball on the floor, then lay down on it with the part of your back that hurts and roll it around the area. It may hurt a little to do this, but it is similar to a massage of the muscle. Just don't put all your weight on the ball.
