What could be the cause for stabbing pain and burning sensation at the back on spine?
User rating for this question
I have a stabbing pain in my back that is burning. If someone touches the spot on my spine I feel I will jump through the roof. Ive had this since an injury 15 years ago. I had an mri with XXXXXXX The ortho that did it quit his job and went somewhere else. The only fact I know is there was a huge collection of white blood cells in the spot thats injured. I am in alot of pain. Its one spot on my spine that is really bad, but because of that I have major pain and knots in my shoulder blades. If someone touches my spine in that spot its VERY bad. What is wrong????

Brief Answer: Likely to be nerve related cause. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for posting your query. A severe pain at only one point of the spine after a history of injury to the area is likely to be due to a nerve injury or irritation in the area. The collection of white blood cells indicates an inflammation in the area. The presence of a mass causing nerve compression also needs to be ruled out. It is best to get an MRI scan of the area done as this is the best investigation to detect an soft tissue abnormalities. Consulting a neurologist in this regard would be most appropriate. He might prescribe some medicines like methylcobalamin and pregabalin to help with the pain. Some of my patients have felt relief from this kind of nerve pains with the aforementioned medications, therefore i recommend that you take my suggestions sincerely. I hope this answers your query.
