Question: Constant pain between shoulder and spine on upper back, feels like deep constant pressure.
I called for a doctor appointment, but she no longer accepts my insurance. Is this issue something that warrants an urgent care visit?

Brief Answer:
Possibility of musculoskeletal pain is more likely.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
Possibility of musculoskeletal pain is more likely for your symptoms.
So along with advil also follow these steps for better symptomatic relief.
1. Apply warm water pad on affected areas.
2. Avoid heavyweight lifting and strenuous exercise.
3. Avoid sudden jerky movements of back.
You will mostly improve with all these in 2-3 days.
If worsens then consult doctor.
Please let me know if you are smoker or you have any coughing.
I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
