    skin pain on chest and back with no other symptoms
    An_250294 posted:
    have skin pain in 2 small areas. one under my breast (i'm a guy btw) and one on my back under my shoulder blade. no swelling. no redness. no other symptoms. my gut says it was caused due to the large numbers of stressful work hours in an office chair one week. but i've taken many days off since and the pain hasn't gotten any better. it's not unbearable, but very annoying. ibuprofen helps a lot. if i'm cold and get chills, it hurts. if anything brushes against it, it hurts. doesn't feel like a bruise at all. almost feels like a rug burn. point is i've googled and found nothing. i just want to know what happened to me and if it will go away on its own. thank you for any advice you can offer.
