I have quite a bit of muscle aches and pains, mostly in my back. I'm pretty sure this is cause by carrying around up to 40 lbs of school supplies for eight or more hours a day plus the stress of a new school year (although I had pretty terrible back pain during the summer, it was usually relieved when I got someone to help me pop my back). However, the back of my neck and shoulders always feel stiff and tense, no matter how much massaging/relaxing I try. And I don't know if this is relevant or not, but when I lay down flat on my back or stomach and relax my muscles, my back and my ribs/chest ache badly.
My chest pain flares up sometimes - completely randomly. It can happen on both sides, but the most frequent and most painful happens on my left side. It's usually short stabbing pains with a very dull ache afterward, and the ache sometimes spreads to my shoulder and upper arm (stopping about halfway to the elbow) - sometimes even the base of my neck. The stabbing sensation completely bypasses my breasts. I don't know how to say it other than I can simply feel the pain *under* the breast tissue.
The wrist pain, on the other hand, most frequently occurs in my right arm, usually upset by writing or using a mouse (I can only write about 12-15 lines on notebook paper before I have to stop and rub my wrist so I can start writing again). The pain that flares up in my left wrist/hand is less sharp, but it has a further spread and lasts longer and is also completely random in when it flares up.
I really would like to get rid of these symptoms, because I hate always feeling so tense and exhausted because my muscles refuse to relax. Thanks in advance for any help.
also, some additional notes;
~ my family dos have a history of high blood pressure and hypertension, as well as breast cancer
~ I'm 16 and, obviously, female
