Question by Josh: Upper back pain between shoulder blades when moving neck?
So recently i went on a roller coaster ride and on it i had whiplash and i moved my neck really fast downward. now whenever i slightly move my neck down, my back hurts, more specifically in between my shoulder blades. options ?
Answer by GFISH
Being on a roller coaster can be traumatic and sometimes even cause mild injuries such as a whiplash type injury or a sprain/strain of the neck muscles.In your case, it may even have caused some spasm of the rhomboid muscles which are in between the shoulder blades.
You should use ice for 10-15min on your neck and upper back area. Some gentle trigger point therapy will also be beneficial. It may take some time to heal. You may even want to see a chiropractor or an osteopath if the pain persists.
When you are able to move your head and neck a little more, do some gentle neck stretches.Be extra careful and don’t over stretch, as this may cause some pain.

Severe backache in first pregnancy, became chronic pain even today after 8 years. is 2nd pregnancy advisable?
Question by chronicallyill9: Severe backache in first pregnancy, became chronic pain even today after 8 years. is 2nd pregnancy advisable?
I had a very bad pregnancy experience the first time. my back started hurting from the 6th week. and then on it has become part of my life even after 8 years now post delivery which was a C-section. I did not dare to think of the second one because of all this but now I have started feeling desperate for a second one. I am really confused. doctor says it is muscular pain and MRI scan does not show any bone problem. I also have other problems like vertigo and the backpain traverses to the legs and feet causing a numb pain. I am 31 years old. I dont have much support at home other than my husband who is very caring. My questions
1) Has anyone experienced this chronic pain after pregnancy?
2) Will I be able to go through the another pregnancy process?
3) Is it too late now?
Answer by charlie
Firstly sorry to hear that your first pregnancy was rough.
1. I was lucky enough not to experience back pain during pregnancy so sorry cant help there.
2. The next pregnancy might not be the same. You might carry the next child in a different position so that he/she wont be putting presure on your back. I guess it also depends on how much you are willing to go through to have another child.
3. No, its not too late at all. Youre only young, you have plenty of time.
While youre still considering it, you could use this time to prepare your body for the next pregnancy. Maybe try and strengthen your back muscles with gentle exercises that can be done throughout your pregnancy? Talk to your doctor and he/she might be able to refer you or give you some suggestions. By the time youve made up your mind, your body might be in better condition to cope with a pregnancy.
Best of luck with your decision.

Begin with prayer every day. Ask God to be with you and all of the victims. God bless you for taking His talents He gave you and sharing with others in need.
