Depending on your age, middle and upper back and neck pain can be caused by a variety of things: muscle spasm, arthritis, degenerative disc disease or osteoporosis. If you are young, it is likely muscle fatigue, strain or spasm. Being in pain can cause anxiety and poor concentration. Likewise, anxiety and worry can cause muscle spasm so it can be a vicious cycle. If you are older, a back and neck xray could show the cause, or an MRI if disc disease is suspected. To rule out osteoporosis, a bone density test is done. If this is persistent, I would see a Dr. and get some help. Muscle relaxants are prescription, anti-inflammatories are over the counter, and both my help. Osteoporosis is treated with Vit D, calcium and a variety of prescription meds.
