Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum. I'm 20 years old and I've been experiencing thoracic pain for about 4 years. I've been looking around for info on my symptoms and haven't found much. When I'm upright, the pain is minimal or completely gone, but when I lie down, the pain comes back. As you can imagine, this makes sleeping very difficult. Although I've had this pain for 4 years, it's not always at a consistent level -- sometimes I can lie down for hours and only barely feel it, and sometimes even leaning back in a chair for a moment brings me to tears. I had a spine x-ray about a year ago that came back totally clean. I've seen a few doctors about it and they all brush it off, saying it's just stress or that I should try yoga. I have tried yoga and I saw no change in the pain levels. I've also tried massage, again to no avail. It's weird to me that the pain comes when I'm lying down or leaning back. I feel the least pain when lean completely forward while sitting in a chair, so my chest touches my thighs, and the most pain when I lie flat on my back. Lying on my side can alleviate the pain a little bit, depending on the pain level at the time. Does anyone have any ideas of what this could be, or any suggestions for what to try? Thank you!
