I have been going through almost the exact same thing. Mine started a little over a year ago with a work related injury. They found a small crack in my clavicle and a few bulged disks in my neck. However, I have been experiencing increasingly bad pain in the area between my left shoulder blade and my spine. Usually it is a dull burning, but sometimes it gets so intense that it almost brings me to tears. I have had almost every test imaginable. MRI's, CT scans. PT, TENS unit, injections. You name it. Nothing helps. Recently my doctor sent me to the pain clinic and put me on oxycodone, which doesn't help. To best describe the pain, it is like a burning stabbing sensation. It doesn't pulsate or anything like that. Constant. In the mornings, I wake up with both of my arms and hands asleep and sometimes intense pain in my left hand.
This not only effects my life, but my work and home life as well. My wife is getting frustrated that they cant find anything on the scans and don't have a diagnosis on why I hurt so bad.
I truly hate being on the pain meds. They don't help the pain, but numb my senses so I don't care as much, but I know they are hurting my body.
If anyone has any information on anything like this, and has a possible treatment or even a possible diagnosis, please let me know.
I am so sick of hurting. I can't do it much longer.
