For as long as I can remember I have had stiffness and soreness in my upper back and shoulder blades. I’m 24 and over the past few years it has gotten worse and worse. I have been to doctors, chiropractors and message therapists and no one can help. It gets to the point of pain sometimes, but mainly just extreme stiffness and soreness, to the point where I almost can’t function normally day to day. It feels good when I bend backwards over rounded objects (chairs, foam rollers etc) and pop my back. I’m constantly popping my back, only thing that makes it feel better. I do stretching and work out and this makes it feel better temporarily.

I have no pain in my lower back or anywhere else in my body. I have considered AS, and other forms of arthritis, but I don’t have any pain or stiffness anywhere else in my body.

I need help so bad, I just want to feel normal again. Any ideas? Types of doctors I should see? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
