I started having pain in my back, right under my right shoulder blade. It hurt and then the pain kind of "wrapped" aroung my right flank side and ended directly under my right breast. Wow.... can't describe the intense pains I felt. Only ice packs helped and then I started with some pain meds left over from dental work. I truly never got complete relief but was able to get to the doc after a week or so.... thought it might be kidney stones at first..... doc said degenerative arthritis of the thorasic spine... so, what help is there?
