Use moist heat to relax the soft tissue then stretch. ...Read more

Doubt cervical disks: If the cervical disks are not causing a radiating pain, numbness, tingling or weakness, they may not be the cause of upper back pain. Congenital kyphosis is more likely. Physical therapy and a trans cutaneous nerve stimulator might be of help. Imaging of the thoracic spine may shed further light on the problem. ...Read more
I keep getting a weird tingly burning sensation at the tops of both breasts.Not pain, discomfort. Doc says heart ok.Upper back pain. Anxiety. Ideas?
Probably ok: Your symptoms are unusual because there is tingling on both sides. If it was a stroke or a tumor, it would only be on one side of the body, so you shouldn't have to worry about that. It could be from anxiety, but that's an unusual way for it to present. There is a condition called myelitis, inflammation of the spinal cord, that could cause this. Ask your doctor to evaluate you with this in mind. ...Read more
Posture!: Most of the people that come to me with this type of pain (pain not from an injury) are doing something repeatedly or for long periods of time where they hold their arms out in front of them.

Correcting the posture can help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
