please help me! do i have a spinal tumor???????

please help meee!!!!

I have been having VERY severe back pain and I was doing research on spinal tumors, and I have all of these symptoms.

-Middle back pain (thoracic)
-Worse when lying down
-Worse with strain, sneezing, coughing etc.
-Pain not relieved by medication
-Difficulty walking
-Muscle weakness
-Worse at night and morning
-Headaches
-Fever
-Night Sweats
-Malaise
-Fatigue
-Agitation
-Abdominal Pain

But my question is that "coughing up blood" is another symptom, but only once have i coughed up blood, I have been coughing up black stuff for about 4 months now, and my back pain seems to only be getting worse, if anyone knows anything about this, please help me! thank you.

If you have been coughing up black stuff for 4 months, as well as having:
-Middle back pain (thoracic)
-Worse when lying down
-Worse with strain, sneezing, coughing etc.
-Pain not relieved by medication
-Difficulty walking
-Muscle weakness
-Worse at night and morning
-Headaches
-Fever
-Night Sweats
-Malaise
-Fatigue
-Agitation
-Abdominal Pain

See a doctor.  If you are already seeing one and they don't know what's causing all this, get another opinion.

You could very well have a spinal tumor but whatever you have clearly is pretty serious and if you haven't gotten yourself to a doctor yet, in your place I'd do anything I needed to -- if necessary stand in line at the Emergency Room (which isn't a great way to get medical care, but better than nothing) -- to get seen.

I understand that some spinal tumors have good chance of cure if caught early enough.
