Pain in middle and upper back
Hi Doctors, Greetings From one week, I have pain in my middle and upper back(right shoulder blade), mostly on the right side. In general, during walking or sitting, there is no pain, but when I change postions or move/bend/stretch in a certain way, the pain is very high, and gradually then it goes. Sometimes, the pain is also near ribs ending on the lower side in the movement as stated above. Can you please guide what shall I do, any xray MRI, etc, to be done, and if any over the counter medicine or exercise can help?

If pain is very high , and with complaints of radiating pain , better to get an mri done . You can try back strengthening physiotherapy exercises for 2 weeks to start with along with some pain medication . If pain is not decreasing by 2 weeks then please get mri dorsal spine with whole spine screening .
