We have similar problems, although I’ve already had neck and back surgery. My pain gets really bad too when I do dishes, type and do other things with my arms. Reaching is hard and I have very severe upper back pain. All this I’ve been told, is referred pain from my cervical spine, it’s a mess. I had surgery 5 years ago for this, now I have to have another one.
Did you have a cervical spine MRI? I have the chest tightness problems too, it’s horrible, I know. I have also been told that this is also referred pain from my neck.
The thing is I’m pretty sure my spines crooked too. I had a problem with my legs when I was a kid and ones longer than the other. I think this is what has thrown my spine off. Also my shoulders are different heights; I can see it in the mirror. You’d think, with all these high-dollar Doctors I’ve seen, one of them would have picked it up. I think my surgeries have made it worse, when the surgeon did my back, he just focused on the lumbar spine, and when I had my neck done, it was the cervical spine. No one has taken a full top to bottom x-ray of my spine.
I’m not a big fan of Chiropractors, but they are good for this kind of thing. I’m going to go see one next week. They’ll do a full spinal x-ray, and their a lot cheaper than a Doctor. I probably won’t use them; I just want to know what they think. I don’t even know if it’s serious enough to worry about, or if it’s causing me any pain, but would just like to know for my own piece of mind.
