I've been having pain in my upper and middle back for over a year. I've had MRI and xrays done and no one can tell me what's wrong. I went to a back Dr at the Mayo Clinic thinking maybe he could tell me something. All he did was look at the results of my MRI and xray from over a year ago and tell me it's Fibromyalgia. I know I have Fibromyalgia but the pain in my back seems to be more in the spine itself. It hurts to lay down and to sit back against a chair. It gets really bad when I use my arms to do things like cooking, cleaning, dishes, driving etc. Or to reach, bend, or twist for something. He sent me to get physical therapy. The therapist said it looks like my spine is twisted - which is what I've been thinking for a long time. I can see that my top part of my body doesn't line up with the bottom part. The problem is that I can't seem to find a Dr who wants to help me or who will listen to me. My chest gets tight and hurts and I feel like I have the air squeezed out of me. So they checked my heart. Nothing.
I guess what I want to know is will therapy help a twisted spine or should I see another Dr or chiropractor? I've been to chiropractors with no help.
I just want some relief from all the pain and would like a Dr who will actually look at my spine
