Cut back # cigarettes until reach zero and symptoms should resolve over time--may be an early bronchitis-type response, which is not desirable. ...Read more

Hi I keep having sharp pains in the top of my back to the left it last for a few seconds to a minute feels like its going threw to my chest why!?

May be referred pain: Left-sided pain with chest pressure indicates you need to be seen emergently to rule out any possible cardiac issues, even if you are young. Once this is ruled out, then you can look from musculoskeletal causes or other types of referred pain patterns that may be happening myofascially. If your physical exam is negative, and your lab results are normal, then you should be followed by your PCP. ...Read more

My experience in this type of pain, it is usually related to "tightness" around the suprascapular nerve and of the rhomboid muscles attachng to the shoulder blade. I usually will block the suprascapular nerve and trigger point inject the muscle. ...Read more
