    Suggest treatment for back pain

Hello sir. I experience a stinging pain in my back beside my spine just at the edge of the shoulder blade, where I can reach with my hand. This happens when I've been doing some work without a back rest. Is it a condition that needs treatment? I'm 22yrs old.

I had gone through the case and found that it might be due to cervical spondylitis which pressing the nerve and causes pain.

Go for cervical x-ray and get the diagnosis.

Meanwhile do hand stretching and neck exercise. Take a short break during work.

Avoid pillow while rest. Take mild painkiller if you have pain unbearable and apply muscle relaxant gel and hot water bag during sleep.

The pain will subside.

Hope my answer will be effective for you.
