I never knew how much we use our upper back just to walk. I've pulled something in my upper back and it hurts like the very devil! Just taking a deep breath hurts!
Thanks, Lindsay. I did sit with heating pad for quite awhile earlier today. I can't say it really helps much. LOL I've had problems with my lower back off and on for years, but this is the first time I've ever had any pain in my upper back. I have to say I think this upper back pain is worse!
Does it feel muscular? like you pulled a muscle? or does it feel you have a rib head out? Ice and ibuprofen for at least 2 days and then consider heat but ice is your best bet right now. you need to take down inflammation.
