I too am experiencing sort of the same symtoms.  For 3 to 4 weeks now I have pain and tenderness in my upper back and when I breathe it hurts.  I too am sore and tender when I touch the areas in my back.  I went to the doctor and he put me on the Medrol 6 day dosage which is a steroid.  It worked for 6 days and then came back and then the doctor put me on 2400mg a day of Ibuprofen which has not worked.  I am going to my Oncologist tomorrow for my 6 month check up and will ask him.  I also have very bad muscle spasms the past 6 months.  I am told working at a desk job all day is not good for posture and that can cause back issues.  I hope your clears up soon.
