Anyone get upper back pain , like a tightening where your spine is? If so how do you help reduce the pain
If I use my arms a lot, I get a stabbing pain in my upper back. It even feels like a knife is stabbing me in my chest at the same time. Ii usually use my heating pad or take my meds if it is time.
Also some times I have figured out it's trapped gas. In that case I take a Bentyl too. This is an anti-spasmotic drug for this purpose.
Epsom salts in a warm water bath. Works better than meds for me.
Oh yes, but I have DDD in my thoracic spine which adds to that. A soak in an Epsom bath really helps, not only with that but with my other joint and muscle aches too
