This is Dr. David
this pain could be due to a pinched nerve in your spine
possibly from arthritis or a temporary herniated disk
you would benefit from an MRI scan of your thoracic spine.
Thanks. Is there any thing short term to relieve the pain? Should I stop back exercises/stretches?
you can continue to try stretching if it helps.
avoid carrying heavy bags over your shoulder
heavy rucsacs can cause more strain on your neck and upper shoulder and spine
and worsen pinched nerves in your upper back.
do you have other questions?
No thank you. Will do as you say and talk to my GP and suggest MRI scan. Thanks. Mike
