    Back Pain Across Shoulders

    What could cause that? I go see a chiropractor once a week it does offer some relieve but then the pain come just as sharp as before! I will take OTC meds like Advil but that does not help most of the time. I would love to hear any advice or suggestions about his please and thank you.

    Hi Lefty2121 - welcome to the support group -

    unfortunately there could be numerous reasons this is happening. the best advise is for you to see your primary physician where he/she can examine you and order any tests that may need to be done (X-ray, MRI, CT Scan etc).

    I would, in the meantime, stop seeing the chiropractor as they can do more harm than good if you do not have a proper diagnosis.

    Please keep us posted what you find out~~

    Thank you so much for the advice I will talk with my Primary doc this friday because the pain is getting worst. I even bought a new Tempra Mattress to see if that would work but I still wake up kinda stiff.
