I have had a long bout with serious back pain. It appears to be directly under my right shoulder blade but radiates throught the chest. All feels fine except when I try to raise my arms and straighten my back. That is when it hurts really bad. Several different types of shots, therapy, and several chiropractic visits later and pain still persists. I have had 3 MRIs and 2 CT scans and they show a minor T1 compression fracture. That is where they have injected steroids several times and that has not made a difference. Anybody else have the same issue?
Now I have started to develop small sores on my stomach just below my belly button that are itchy and when scratched, yield a small white dot that is rubbery in texture. They start out small and get bigger and eventually show a white spot that will come loose and the bleed where it was. The white thing that comes out is supprisingly hard. They resemble a mushroom in shape once pulled away.

Sorry , I put two issues in one post but I need some answers. I do not know if one has to do with the other, but something has to give. The doctors don't know what to do about either except feed me pills that do not work. The only pain pills that work I refuse to take all the time. If I continued to take the pain pills like they want me to, I could not function throughout the day.
