I have had sensitivity or tenderness directly in the middle of my spine (on the bone) for several months. Many times through out the day I have had cold tingling sensation shoot up my back, just to the left of my spine. I have not been able to find anything online that can direct me. I have talked to an anesthesiologist that says it most likely has nothing to do with my epidural I had six months ago. I am nervous to spend a fortune on tests and was wondering if anyone knows the cause of these symptoms. Thank you.

  • Hi, Im 16 and have a similar problem. I have pretty weak back muscles and use the computer too much. Sometimes when i sit on hard surfaces like a bus/subway chair i get a relle uncomfortable feeling right in the middle of my back where it touches. I also occasionally have a really cold feeling like ice is running through my veins that travels into my legs when walking. And i have a tingling feeling in the same part of the back that is mostly on the left side and will flare up through my body for a split second and it really scares me. Ive had an MRI done and an X ray. I'm glad I'm not alone in this. Don't worry too much about it though because it might just be a pinched nerve in the spine. I'm hoping that's all it is for both of us. Anyways take it easy and don't pay attention too it or you will get into a viscious circle.
