i get upper back ache everyday along with shoulder blades feel like a burning sensation in them and when i bend my head my upper back and shoulders ache .the only time it doesnt bother me is when im in bed .then as soon as i get up in morning it starts all over again.anyone any ideas?
at work in december i was carrying a carpet cleaner down stairs when i slipped down about 6 stairs but i never mentioned it to my doc because at the time i wasnt getting much trouble from it because i had other problems with my stomach going on at the time but now it is everyday i get the burning etc.anyone no if i should mention it to my doc?
hi again thanks for your replies im going to see dr in morning .i bet hes going to be fed up of me soon cos ive been going to him since last june with stomach problems .i only found out in may it was hiatus hernia. never mind thats what they are there for. i just get worried if they try telling you anything just to get shut of you.
Always remember that YOU are number ONE. Don't let any doc try to intimidate you. If a doc does, then cross him/her off of your list and find a BETTER doctor.
During the past year and a half I have been to 7 spinal surgeons/neurologists. Of those, only a neurologist, a pain management doc and one spinal surgeon have actually listened to me. Most won't give me the time of day. To those I say "Shove IT" and move on. AND that's after eliminating a lot of spinal specialists because of bad references. I have no idea how the "baddies" are permitted to graduate from med school.
The name of the game is to find the very best spinal doc that you can find. Ain't many out there, but there are a few. Just keep searching and don't waste your time with the baddies.
Take care. Hang in there.
P.S. - I wonder if carrying a BIG bat into the exam room would make a difference. LOL
