I have pain in my upper back and have had it for half a year i'd say. There seems to be a knot right by my spine a few inches below the shoulder blades. I do pull ups, push ups and ab workouts, but hardly lift weights. I am 19 and don't really know how to fix this problem. The pain isn't constant just when I have been sitting or standing for a while. I think part of the reason could be posture, but not quite sure. Also a couple days ago I started losing feeling in my left fingers, like they were falling asleep except it wasn't like if I slept on it or something. Then again today I had the same feeling through my whole hand.
Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possibilities that may need to be considered include postural defects, spinal issues such as degenerations, neuro-muscular issues etc. It would be best to have this evaluated by a primary care physician or an orthopedician. After a specific cause is diagnosed, it can be managed accordingly.
Hope this is helpful.
