Your mention of sterss getting ingrained into the nervous system brought to mind something I read long ago that the mind writes deeply into the body.In light of that, a bit of an update and some further info:About 1.5 years ago, I threw out my back from, of all things, a sneeze. The affected area is between the lower shoulder blades, roughly in the level of the lower third of the sternum. Since then, I have had a myriad of back issues. And yes, lots of sterss over the job, money, health, etc. A year ago, I went in to the hospital with an incredible amount of pain across my back and a lot of pressure at/under the diaphragm EKG, echocardiogram and sterss test all came back ok. I believe it may have been a muscle spasm connected with the back issue above. When I try to employ good posture, I tend to get a stabby pain in the affected vertebra. Stretching the back or using a foam roller to get the vertebra to pop' tends to relieve things for a short time, but there is no lasting relief. I get many muscle knots along the upper spine and between the shoulder blades that I try to roll out using the foam roller or tennis balls with limited success. My heating pad is my new best friend. I also get occasional spasms in the upper abdominals / diaphragm that feel almost like a hiccup up into my chest quite alarming to feel that as you're drifting off to sleep.On the foam angel, once my arms get out to about 90 degrees, it gets very hard to keep my shoulders down/relaxed and it feels almost like someone has grasped the bottom of my sternum and is lifting it up. I get pain through the front of the deltoid where it attaches to the humerus, wrapping through the gap between the deltoid and bicep and around the outside of the bicep into the low tricep. After a moment longer, my hand will usually start to twitch and the whole arm gets a tingly/electic shock feeling, usually accompanied by a pain to the inside of the shoulder blade. The left side is probably twice the intensity of the right side with these symptoms. Once I move my arms back down, the symptoms go away and I'm left with some residual tenderness at the outside edges of the sternum where the ribs attach, actual spots painful to the touch as if I've bruised myself. http://qqscjswridr.com [url=http://bdirtvlgd.com]bdirtvlgd[/url] [link=http://nuortxmr.com]nuortxmr[/link]
