What causes upper back pain with sore body muscles?
Hi, for the last three days i have been having severe upper back pain, it feels like my muscles are pulling in different directions. My neck hurts. In fact my entire body muscles are sore and I haven t been working out or anything. I do working in an office where I do a lot of typing, could this be a muscle spasm or a pinched nerve?
As a first line management you can take analgesics like paracetamol or aceclofenac for pain relief. If symptoms persist better to consult an orthopedic and plan for an MRI spine to rule out spine related problems like a prolapsed disc or nerve compression.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
