Afternoon guys Some may have seen my other posts...I’m getting there, every single day now is better than this time a year ago. The pain/problems I had have reduced by at least 70-80%. HOWEVER.... Recently I have started getting a stinging sensation in my upper back, and my traps to their attachment at the base of the skull. Main areas though are upper traps and upper back. my skin feels sunburnt. It is very sensitive. Any movement and my clothing causes pain. The skin isn’t particularly warm to touch. I just feel like I have very bad sunburn. It is bad when I wear a coat or jacket. When I just have a T-shirt on it’s not as bad but still there. When I have no top on, I don’t feel any burning at all. It also tends to be worse in the days after training. My training is perfect, all going so well. I still do worry though, once I’ve trained, that the coming days may be a struggle. It’s definitely conditioned behaviour. I usually find that in the days after my training I’m in much more discomfort than the training should have caused. It’s like my unconscious grabs on to the fact I’ve trained and turns that tap of pain on- to make me think the training is the issue. I’m taking that now the ‘pain’ doesn’t stop me like it used to, there has been a change of plan and suddenly this burning/stinging feeling is it’s next attempt at beating me? my question is, has anyone dealt with this type of thing before; having overcome ‘pain’ they may have been experiencing. I suppose I should ask has this been symptom imperative for others and have you noticed it as you get towards that end goal? I have felt this kind of sensation before. But not this bad. I’ve had every test/diagnostic known to man so I’m sure there’s nothing going on. Just interested to see if anyone else has had this; as I don’t recall noticing a lot of people with this type of manifestation. worth noting....maybe... that 99.9% of my pain over the last 3 years has been in my neck/traps. So maybe a new sensation, stinging and burning is simply a replacement or a partner for the dull and deep pain I usually experience .
