Try carrying your computer in a back pack or different bag that allows you to maintain a balanced posture that you do not have to strain to maintain. ...Read more

Feel pain at the back of the head-neck-uuper shoulder (just above the shoulder blade), dizziness, what's this? Need advise. Is it in the head or spine?

Muscle pain: It appears to be a muscle spasm in the trapezius muscle. Try some ice if it is a few days old. If longer try some moist heat like a warm compress. Put a wet towel in the microwave and warm it. Test is with your hand, so it does not burn your skin. Then place it on your shoulder for twenty mins each hour. You can also take some Motrin for the pain 600 mg, 3 tabs of the 200 mg tabs. Good luck! ...Read more

I have aching pain in my upper back and neck and shoulders a little in my ribs at the back. Also chest hurts when breathing in?

Mgt: There are a number of possible conditions which can cause these symptoms. If you are otherwise healthy, muscular pain is a likely cause. Other possible causes include pleuritic inflammation or infection. In your age group, cardiac findings are less common. I would recommend a NSAID and a heating pad. If the pain worsen or does not resolve in a few weeks, please see your physician. ...Read more

Please I have gastritis but I also feel feel pain in my back, neck an shoulder. Could the gastritis be the problem?

Perhaps: The answer to your question is perhaps. Though it would be unlikely to manifest with pain in your neck and shoulder. You defenititely need to see your doctor as something else may be going on. Based on what you are describing I would not assume this is gastritis. The differential diagnosis is quite broad and many other things must be considered. ...Read more

What can I do if I think I have a pinched nerve in my upper back in between my shoulder blades that radiating pain in my back, neck, &in shoulder socket?

Upper back pain: The pain that you describe could be from a pinched nerve but it could also be from muscles or tendons that are inflamed or injured. For example, the attachment of the rib head to the spine can be malpositioned and create the pain you describe. It is important to be evaluated by a neurosurgeon or spine surgeon to determine the cause of the pain so that a proper treatment can be initiated. ...Read more

My body getting sharp pain esp at back, chest, neck, shoulder after I fell down in sitting position. I have a problem with my spine in lumbar?

I'm not sure: I completely understand but very likely the fall you experienced is the main cause of your symptoms. Often a fall can result in muscle and soft tissue injuries that cause malalignment and are worse in one position (sitting) or another. Perhaps you are saying you had low back pain prior to this. Your health or sports medicine professional, or physical therapist is the place to start for analysis. ...Read more
