Is it in my head? Back tingling / pain all over

36 year old female.

I had pain in my mid upper back for a year. Gallbladder out. MRI and ct scan show nothing.

Pain now radiates from lower back (mostly right side) up. Sometimes straight up sometimes diagonal. The pain comes in waves. Also occurring is burning/tingling in my upper back.

These symptoms have been gradual. Worse around my period but now seem constant.

Recent X-ray shows bone spurs in spine but nothing else.

I go see my doc in three weeks.

Oh- my vitamin d is normal, my b12 a little high and my pth slightly elevated.

From what I read pinched nerves cause extremity tingling- none of this.  Although my right eye is twitching a lot this last couple of days.

The pain is not symmetrical and so not fibromyalgia right?

Help!  I don't even know what I should be expecting my doc to do!

Thanks.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

You may be having a nerve compression at the cervical (neck) level. The nerve compression could be due to an osteophyte, growth or a disc. This could be causing the odd sensation in the back. A neurological examination by your primary care physician may confirm this. He may then ask for if needed an MRI to find out what is causing the compression. This is usually treated conservatively (without surgery) with physiotherapy, traction and cervical collars. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
