I have a pressure sensation/feeling on my back, as if someone was holding his finger on my skin.

It happened for the first time around February last year, I had someone check my back but there was no signs of anything. It lasted for a few months, 2-3 and disappeared. This strange feeling has just came back, exactly the same spot, just under my right shoulder plate. It's about the size of a fingertip, and the "pressure" comes and goes, and when it's there will vary depending on my position, sometime very light, but other times it can be anoying, not painful, but disturbing enough to make me stop what I'm doing.

Few pointers about me, I have a very strong immune system, thick skin (so said my tattoo artist), thick blood (I usually don't bleed from a small to medium cut) and am a lot less sensitive to pain than most.

  • I suffered the exact pain for 20 years, seen various doctors, had an mri scan and nothing showed. Last year I saw a chiropractor and have not looked back. The vertebrae between my shoulders blades were misaligned and sitting on a nerve causing the pain. I cannot tell you the sense of relief I felt after my first visit to him was amazing, the pain instantly went. Have a chat with a chiropracter and see how it goes. Hope this helps and you get some relief soon. :)
