MUSCLES PAIN RIGHT SIDE NEAR T 5 -6

Started by desert guy on 04/27/2014 5:03am

I HAVE THIS PROBLEM FROM LAST 20 DAYS AND AFTER TAKING MEDICINES PAIN REDUCES AND AFTER 5-6 HOURS IT PAIN AGAIN .

DOING COMPUTER WORK OR DRIVING IT COMES MORE PAINFUL

IF I DO REST IT FEELS THAT I AM 100% FIT AND THERE IS NO PAIN BUT IF I WALK , SIT FOR MORE THAN 10 MINUTES , PAIN STARTS AND IT COMES IN RIGHT SIDE OF MY LAST RIB ,

Do you find this discussion helpful?

I have the same problem. I have 5 ruptured discs from T. 4-9. The one that causes the most pain is T.5-6, and yes, I have the rib pain too. Unfortunately, there's nothing to be done about it. I have done everything other than surgery and unfortunately, that's not an option. Find good pain management.
A year ago, laying down helped, but now, not so much. I try not to focus on what this will be like next year, as the pain has already stolen my life. I live in bed most of the time, only going out to see the doctor. This is mostly due to NOT having good pain management (I'm stuck with work comp).
Surgery may be an option for you, just not in my case. Try and keep your head in a neutral position, and your arms down by your sides as any other position will aggravate your upper back, like when you're driving or sitting at the computer. I know from experience that this doesn't leave much room for doing anything, but it will help the pain from getting worse.
Wish I had more positive things to say, but this is a terrible thing to suffer through.

Wow! It is really sad that back pain can literally rule your life. I had an episode the last few days from a strained muscle that caused my butt, calf and ankle to pain like shit. Anyhow, I found this web site and I've tried the exercises that are prescribed......they worked. But during that time I was wondering how I would financially support myself as I'm self employed. Because back pain can change your employment ability I decided to focus on Internet marketing........I just wanted to share this with you folks because sometimes with the back pain you feel that your world has crumbled around you.
