20 y/o mild pain/discomfort

Recently I've noticed mild pain along my back and down my arms. It isn't unbearable but it has proved to be rather concerning, seeing as I don't know the cause of it. It is primarily in my upper back, however I have noticed lower back discomfort as well. As for the pain in my arms, it feels like a mild version of hitting my "funny bone". Is it urgent I see a doctor? Or should I give it more time? It's only been a couple days since I noticed the discomfort. Thanks to all.

  • If you have numbness, tingling, or burning sensations down your arm I would make an appointment asap. When you have those symptoms it may be indicative of a pinch nerve. I have the similar problems from cervical radiculitis, DDD, and disc bulges, as well as neck pain, headaches, and muscle spasms. These symptoms should certainly be looked in to.
