I have pain in my upper back at left side and also pain in corresponding point in my left chest. I am having this problem since last few years. sometime more and some time less, but pain there all the time. I feel more pain when i take long breath. I feel pain when sneezing and coughing too. I feel burn or hot even i drink mild warm water or tea and feel cool when i drink cold water in my food pipe at left chest when probably i feel pain. I did barim x-ray, INDOSCOPY many times, but report is negative. Doctors says, it may be due to REFLUX. I have taking anticid and LOZEC for 6 month but no difference. I have no diabetis. I am a heart patience and have put stents in one place. My heart condition is staybel and taking, LIPTOR (liptor), CLOVERSIL, PLAVIX.
I HAVE TV SKIN TEST POSITIVE recently and X-RAY RESULT yet to come. I dont think i have TB deases but it is possible i have INATIVE TB infection.
However, i have having above problem continiously for 4-5 years. I feel more pain around lower back too, if i stand long hour or carry some weight. I really dont know all these problems are associated each other,difference problem or just a single problem.
I would appreciate if you please help me to dignose my issue so that I can do proper treatment. As for TB positive, i will continue for require testing and treatment if necessary.
My opinion is that you possibly suffer soft tissue injury around thorax vertebra (about T3-T5),which can lead to sensitive feeling in your oesophagus , chest pain,and also can lead to lower back pain as balance reason.
So you should go to see doc to check your upper back soft tissue.
