Can COPD cause burning, tingling sensations in the upper back lung area? It feels like my upper back and chest is tight and heavy feeling.
Not usually: COPD usually causes shortness of breath, chest tightness, wheezing, and coughing. The sort of symptoms you are describing may be something more significant. I would get checked out by your doctor. He or she can listen to your lungs and maybe get blood tests or a chest xray. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My upper back for the last year or so constantly goes numb. I also get a burning tingling pain sensation. If I move suddenly I get a sharp pain there?

Have someone help you to test where you are numb and then try to draw a circle around the numb area. Repeat over a few days to see if the area is constant or changes. Do same for tingling. Try to be precise about where the pain is. Then take information to your doctor. ...Read more

What can cause numbness/tingling in the whole middle and upper back in a 26/f. Comes and goes throughout the day, more prominent after working out.
Pinched nerve : A pinched nerve in the lower cervical spine (neck) or upper thoracic spine can cause these symptoms. A pinched nerve can be from a ruptured disc (unlikely at your age) a muscle spasm (likely) or a bony spur (unlikely).

On/off burning feeling in mid upper back. Seem worse when lying down.Started a desk bound work for about a month now.Wondering if it is cause by that?
I would put money: on it. Your body is most comfortable when you are moving about and your muscles/joints/spine are in various and changing positions. When one is static, muscle strain results; it can feel like burning. Try to get up and stretch/move around every 45-60 minutes. Begin a stretching program, after you have warmed up, a few times a week. Warm baths. Massage. Try a few things to develop a helpful program ...Read more

Isolated?: If this is isolated to the upper back and no radiation into the arm or arms, then most likely a myofascial pain issue. There are several small nerves that run through the layers of muscles in this area. Restriction in the fascia can cause these nerves to get pinched that can cause the burning sensations.

31 yr old female upper back for bout a week no other symptoms burning feeling in back what could it be if serious would I have other symptoms?
Burning feeling: Is there a rash there? Because that could be shingles. If there's no rash after a week, it's probably not shingles. Did you have any trauma? A fall or bump into something? Maybe there is a little peripheral nerve that is getting pinched in the spine. Serious symptoms would be worsening pain, fevers. If it gets worse, go see someone. ...Read more
