So i have been dealing with lower to upper back pain for the past 5 months. I have had 2 MRIs, one showing a bulged disk in the lower back and the other was showing a few bulged disk in my upper back along with a fluid build up in my spine. But 5 days after the second MRI i was lifting barrels all day and slowely developed this terrible pain in my right shoulder. over the next few days it just got worse and worse to the point that i couldn't drink coffee or drive with that would immediatly go dead....felt like i was just dragging along a arm. The pain kept getting worse and worse and by friday it was so bad i was in a fetal position. seems to go from the neck to the end of my shoulder as well as behind. basically feels like it is being pulled from every direction. But on friday all of a sudden my body got so heavy that i could not entire body got numb, i couldn't breath. I was rushed to the hospital...they did every test in the book...everything came back alright. since that day the pain in my shoulder has gotten some what better but now any time i move my neck down or to the right i get the most shooting pain down my rib cage/ right back. I have been taking pain killers, muscle relaxers and nothing will touch it...all they do is confuse me. I will be seeing a orthepedic this week hopefully but i just wanted some other input. I am beginning to get very scared something is seriously wrong. Also if i move my should up or down i also get that shooting pain down my rib cage.Please help

Good luck with your appointment. I hope everything goes well. There's nothing to worry about.Even i had back pain issues but my orthopedic doctor treated me very well.
