Has anybody else had really bad pains in middle of the back that go right through to there chest.
I see a chiropractor once every other week. Seems the muscle pain and spasms cause my body to go out of alignment and causes more pain. I had to work with my chiropractor by being very communicative because to strong of an adjustment made me ache so badly. I am usually "uncomfortable" the night of adjustment but feel better the next day or 2. Finding a chiropractor who understands fibromyalgia and how to work with those of us who suffer was not easy but oh so worth it.
I'm fortunate indeed, I guess, after reading all these, to be able to pop my back on my own. If I didn't do that periodically every day the pain would be intolerable!
I have had what is called "esophageal spasms" though, but that starts as pain in exact middle of chest and it is a sense of crushing that gets worse and worse. Eventually will go AROUND to my back, not THROUGH to it. So it's a different pain than what you are describing here. However, it used to be misconstrued as heart attack, until the second or third ambulance ride. After which I was able to talk my doctor into prescribing me emergency use only nitroglycerin as that works for esophageal spasms as well as it works for heart attacks!
I am pretty sure what you guys are talking about is different. First, none said anything about chest pain.
I do have a friend who I suspect either already has or is coming down with Fibromyalgia. She described pain starting in her lower middle back being so bad it goes through to her chest. Sounds like what you guys are talking about. Worst thing here though is that I cannot recommend a doctor locally for diagnosis. The one who diagnosed me was either completely off her medication or was having perhaps the worst day of her life when I saw her. Also the day she diagnosed me, then she took it back because I had 18 pressure points rather than the 12 all our doctors were being told there were at the time. Later when more information came out and 18 points became standard I didn't have to go back to know that I qualified as definitely having Fibromyalgia.
Yes!!! I thought it was part of my back problem but now not sure!!!! I always feel like it's a spot on need to pop??? Make sense?
It is costoritis often with fibromyalgia and it makes it hard to breathe and you feel like it could be your heart!
