I’ve got some pain or numbness in the right side of my upper back. It seems to be the teres major/minor part, but it radiates and is hard to pin-point.
I place it behind and a little over the arm-pit, sometimes radiating down so it’s almost in the “upper lat”. Occasionally it’s higher.
I also feel it between the spine and the scapula, which would be the lower traps, I’m thinking. (Rhomboideus? Infraspinatus?)
Hard to pin-point…
The worst thing I can do to aggravate it seems to be to lie in bed on my back or sit reclined. A desk can be tough too.
I’ve tried different kinds of pressing, pulling carefully but haven’t found anything that really aggravates it more than usual.
As it is now I’ve taken a week off, doing nothing. Using ice and heat. When this happen before some months ago, I did the same, it went away and I got back to training. This time it seems more persistent.
Surfing around this site, imbalance and postural issues seems likely to be the cause. Especially as I’ve had some questionable training methods in the past.
Rotator cuff issues comes to mind as well.
What is this? What would be the game plan for something like this? Any training program you could get on? Should you wait until you’re completely pain free first? Get medical help ASAP?
Grateful for any advice. Thanks.
