I think I have it..

I am a 28 year old healthy and active male. Every area on my body feels very numb (never sure when to use numb versus tense) when I apply some pressure on it at this point. I previously only dealt with upper back and shoulder tightness which would sometimes even go away after a strong massage. I recently got back from Thailand after spending a month in Bangkok and Chiang Rai. I got a lot of acupuncture and massage therapy done from some of the best massage masters. My range of motion has increased and I can now turn my neck further left than I could before and my back doesn't feel nearly as tight/frozen as it was prior to my trip. However, now everything feels numb when touching and the pain that stands out radiates between right and left side of my upper back. Prior to going to Thailand, I either didn't notice how tense/numb the rest of my body was or the tension was only in my upper back/shoulder area. My upper chest and stomach have NEVER felt this way prior.

    Welcome to the Spine-Health forums.

    The thing that really stands out in your discussion is that you don't mention seeking the advice of a doctor.  Have you?

  • Were you able to come to conclusion on what the diagnosis was?

    This is an old discussion created by a member no longer on the forum so I have to close it. If they return we can reopen the discussion.
