Hello, this is a 21 year old female, having back ache, which is just below the shoulder blade on the right side by the spine. It has been there for about 4 months and has been limiting my activities. It kind of comes to the front along the ribs on either sides and increases if i move or take deep breaths and i have been on pain killers for nearly 2 months. When i bend my neck it kind of catches in the middle of my back. I have been to many doctors who just adviced me to exercise but there has been no improvement. I am worried.

  • No. Why? Could it be a problem with my lungs? I consulted an orthopedician. And got some investigations like RA, HLA-B27, serum uric acid. Etc which were all within normal limits or absent. So he said i had fibromyalgia and put me on pregabalin, but it still there has been no improvement for 2 weeks. And because fibromyalgia is a disease with no cure i wanted to find out if there is any other explanation for my symptoms.

  • As I understood, the problem area is the lungs projection on the back. What kind of "back ache"? There may be several options - kidney's pain, spinal cord pain, nervous pain, disc bulged/herniation, etc. I dont know about your feelings. Each pain is feeled differently. Please specify.

  • My back pain is of burning type like it is on fresh wound immediately after getting up in the morning, later it becomes crampy that i can't bend to brush my teeth. It is right below the tip of my right shoulder blade, by my spine. Also the pain comes to the front along the ribs at the same level on both sides and it kind of catches when i try to take deep breaths or bend sideways. Can u pls help me?...
