Back pain symptoms may seem obvious. But do you know when symptoms of back pain are more serious or when to see a doctor? Learn what action to take & when...
the past few days i have been having bad back pain. i'm tall and skinny. i've always had a crappy back throughout my life. anyway this has been happening lately: whenever i inhale, my upper left back hurts really bad. it feels like it is located around my left scapula, to the right of it. i plan on seeing a chiro just because my back sucks, but this has been happening the past few days and i've got a tournament this weekend and i want to see if there's something i can do. i almost want someone to stand on that spot and push on it, something tells me that that would help it or make it feel better, but since i'm not an expert i decided that wasn't such a good idea. any help would be greatly appreciated, as this hurts real bad. thanks.

There could be many reasons why this is happening. You say you have a tournament, is it a sports tornament? You could have pulled some muscles. An ice pack for 15 minutes at a time can be helpful. Have you been ill lately? If you have, you really need to see a doctor.

You could have a subluxed rib or a somatic dysfunction of your thoracic spine. A very skilled chiropracter should be able to detect this for you, and hopefully get it back into place as well. Osteopathic physicians who do manipualtion therapy are an even better choice.

Same.
This also happens to me, and the fact is, I'm only 13 years old.

This also occurs when moving my arm at certain positions.

I suspect that the problem is that I have pulled a muscle, and I think you have the same problem too.
But it's been a year, hope it's been sort out.
