There had been some suggestions that incorrect (strained/shallow) breathing and anxiety can contribute to upper back pain.
What sort of therapy were you using i.e. CBT, progressive relaxation, etc?
yes CBT i have a psychologist but im not really managing well. and i dnt feel its helping..when i get this discomfort it feels like nothing can make it beta
right now i have it and i tried going toilet and i couldnt so i feel mrore discomfort..wat can i do?
Other therapies are available to help w/ main management such as hypnotherapy (some insurance covers this)
Neurofeedback/biofeedback is another
Some info on the studies just FYI
Journal of Bodywork and Movement TherapiesVolume 8, Issue 4 , Pages 297-306, October 2004
There are other tools - meditation (to learn to de-stress and become mindful of your breathing) progressive muscle relaxation exercise
ive been there done that..
The anxiety level can make the pain worse. If there is also some depression present, that too can make one feel the pain worsen.
You've done hypnosis?
im tired of trying ..and i was put on endep and stopped that was making me so tired and wasnt helping with my back..everyone is saying something different the chiro said my neck is too straight but my bf has teh same neck issue but he diesnt have thisi back problem
All right. I am not sure what to suggest if "you're tired of trying." I've had the experience myself when I discovered the research and link b/w incorrect breathing/anxiety and back pain. There are no magical solutions. Other options would be surgery/nerve pain management implant depending on the feedback from your treating MD.
some say do an MRI and catscan but the doctors dnt recommend dont know why...the chiropractor took xrays isnt that enough..even if i did have a catscan what could possibly come upas the cause
