My back right side was sore and now it has move to the middle by the spine area just today i notice the pain has moved to the left what is this mean?
Muscle strain.: May be a pulled muscle, or an irritation of the nerves to the muscles of the back. At age 64, I am guessing that you may have arthritis of the back as well, and that is associated with back soreness to different parts of the back due to the diffuse nature of back arthritis. If the pain does not go away, or intensifies, please see your doctor. ...Read more

I had a massage a month ago and ever since I have soreness around my spine. When i bend over i feel it. It's tender there. Or is it something else?
Muscular v disc: This is muscular if only a month & it occurred after massage. If longer, it may be from a disc issue that could be a tear in the disc or herniation. If muscular, it will get better by -8 weeks and 90% of discs improve over time. Otc meds can help as can heat &/or ice as well as guided exercise & activity modification.

Is it possible my spine could be unstable? I have had 3 spinal fusions and my latest was done 7 months ago.. Now my back is so sore and feels very unstable when I move etc...
Sciatica: Sciatica refers to pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve — which branches from your lower back through your hips and buttocks and down each leg. Typically, sciatica affects only one side of your body. Sciatica most commonly occurs when a herniated disk or a bone spur on the spine compresses part of the nerve. This causes inflammation, pain and often some numbness in the affected. ...Read more
The base of my spine sticks out since loosing weight, the skin is sore and broken what can I do to avoid it keep happening?
Pressure over bones: Our skin is made to take pressure, deeper tissues are not. When you lost weight, you also lost some of the deeper fatty protective tissue and now any pressure/friction /shearing directly pushes your skin into the spine causing injury. You need to protect this area by applying a good protective skin cream or simple dressings until healed. Reposition yourself frequently or use a cushion to the area. ...Read more
What may be the cause of thickness around the spine just below my neck. my neck is sore almost constantly but the swelling is not painful to touch ?
Your age is needed: When you say "thickness" around the spine I assume you are talking about the musculature in your neck. To answer your question it would be helpful to know your age and occupation and any other symptoms like loss of cervical motion, tingling in your arms. I would suggest that you consult with your family physician to ascertain the cause of this "thickness". ...Read more

Have a sore small redish lump on spine/upper back area today but noticed it was sore about a week ago. Not sure what it could be.
What does it mean if u have quarter size lumps right next to your spine they come n go but they are sore to touch n go up n down spine?
Tough question: I'm not sure what this is without examination, so see a local doctor when 1 of these lumps comes about. There was some postings recently about Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome & other rare auto-immune diseases causing something similar. However, EDS is rare, runs in families & u probably have something benign. But again, see a doctor during the active phase so approp tests can be ordered & u can b checked. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
