I'm a late-20's female runner. I've never had upper/middle back pain like this. It started when I was running over a month ago, and now the pain in constant. I've seen chiropractors, had a massage, iced it, stopped running/any exercising for a week, taken aleve and nothing has worked. The pain radiates up and over my shoulders and continues no matter my position (standing, lying or sitting). I wake up with the pain and it lasts all day.
This morning, I woke up with chest (lung?) pain. It could be totally unrelated but it's worth mentioning.View Thread
