I have a burning sensation on the left side of my back that has become rather uncomfortable. It feels like there is a sunburn but there is no redness or rash. As a cosmetologist I am constantly leaning over sinks, could this be whats causing it? And if so what exactly would be wrong.

I am also a cosmetologist with the same problem. It has been going on for years, but I haven't gotten it checked out yet. Over time it has become worse. I decided to start college where I have been attending for 3 years now. I have a strong science background and with all the research I have done it sound like you have either a pinched nerve or a herniated disk. You will need to talk with your doctor about it so he can help make the right diagnoses for you! Hope this helps!
