HI I am new to this Forum and so excited to find this after searching for months for some relief in my mid back thoracic area. I have tried massages, reiki healing acupunture, mattress topper, exercise, heat etc... It started back in October 2019. I woke up one morning with horrible pain and I have moments of relief with sun, hikes, movement, standing desk but early morning, sleep laying down and evening tends to get worse for me. I am hoping to find out ways to manage. OH also I did have x rays and just mild degeneration in my Thoracic area or arthritis. Currently doing PT and praying to get some relief, again good days and bad days. I especially have pinching in my scapula muscle area only on the left side and only during evening, mornings and laying down. I have read some of the posts here and finally feel like I have found a place I can vent since I feel like such a downer with friends and family. I guess you are all dealing with this too in different ways. Is there any advice I can get on how to manage this? Also taking a ton of supplements for joint health and trying to control inflammation. Would appreciate any advise, validation or help. The only thing that relieves me is Advil and I am worrying about ruining my liver so I take it sparingly and suffer with the pain. Thank you for listening to me ramble. Much appreciate.
