Have upper mid back pain and feel like a giant hand is squeezing me around rib cage sometimes gasp for breath saw chiro & massage ther lots w/no help?

Stop seeing chiro. There are many things that could be causing your symptoms. If it is not a sore muscle then chiro (massage ) is unlikely to help. Heart pain, gallbladder pain, etc can give you similar symptoms and a chiro rubbing your back wont help u. See you md for a work up. If nothing serious is found you can go back to the chiro -- though if it hasnt hellped?
