About 2 weeks ago I was washing and drying my hair. I must've held my arm over my head too long because when I straightened I had a sharp stabbing pain in my back right under my shoulder blade. I figured I pulled a muscle or something because the pain was sharp and my arm hurt no mattered how I moved it. I couldnt even twist around or lean toward my left. After a day or so, the pain subsided and I was okay. However, today the pain returned and this time, it hurts not just when I move but even taking a deep breath hurts. I am a little puzzled and won't be able to get in to see my doc until next week. Anyone ever experience this? It feels as if someone is poking me in the back with a stick but its not like I was doing any heavy labor then or today. Thanks.View Thread
Hi. And yes thankfully I am. But Im worried about the next time and will it be worse. I am so ready for Tuesday because I just have to get to the bottom of this. I'm not a big medicine taker but I have some aspirins just in case. Hope you feel betterView Thread
