I feel clueless/helpless!

30yoF sudden back pain started last Wednesday, seems to be more excruciating when I tilt my head forward or position myself a certain way. Absolutely nothing is helping the pain. Went to the urgent care today they did a chest x ray doc comes back tells me there are overlapping blood vessels on my spine but that shouldn’t cause pain and to take extra strength Tylenol every 6 hours if nothing gets better in a week to go see my primary. Anyone heard of anything having to do with overlapping blood vessels on spine?

    I don't think I would wait a week if you are in that much pain.

  • What is your sense of the origin of the root injury? Your neck or your back? I’m curious why they did a chest x-ray if it’s your back that hurts?
