Pain in back!
Posted 29 April 2008 - 11:34 PM
The very next day in the evening I was in the shower and noticed I was in alot of pain in my back. The pain is in the middle of the back going from side to side on both sides of my back but I have noticed this morning it is now mainly on the right side. It is not low enough to be my kidneys, but is around that area sort of below my shoulder blades. I am also a little sore near my sternum area.
I can move my arms and bend down without pain, so I doubt whether it is muscular pain. The pain is very intense and I am a little worried whether it is internal, I am not sure whether there are any internal organs around there.
It also hurts if I lay down flat, but not if I turn on my sides in bed, weird.
Has anyone else had this or am I the only weird one here ?

We're all weird here! That's the nature of this disease.
I can't tell you how many unexplainable pains I've had in just about every part of my body. It gets to the point where I almost have to laugh as it's just one more thing...and I wonder where the next thing could possibly pop up!
Anyway, I hope you find relief soon and it if not, tell your doctor about it. In the mean time - I'll prescribe a warm soak and a little pampering (because since I'm not a doctor that's all I am allowed to prescribe )
Hang in there!

Pamela & Sheryl, I will be seeing my Gastroenterologist next wednesday, if I can last that long, I shall mention it to her then.
Thanks everyone for the replies.

How are you feeling today? Any better? If you are still having pains, maybe you can see about pushing up your appointment instead of waiting until Wed.
Good luck and keep us posted.

Just saw your thread and read of the pain you've been having.
I hope by now, that the pain is leaving, if not left. Lying on the
hard, flat surface you were on during the procedure... couldn't have helped.
Pam and Sheryl brought up some things that could possibly be the culprit(s).
I hope not, though... for your sake.
As for the bath that you love... I hope you can manage one, if you haven't yet...
Nothing better than a leisurely bath/soak to cure all that ails you!
