Last night noticed I had a sore back when I breathed in - felt like I had a rock in my chest sad Woke in the night with my back so sore I could hardly get out of bed. All across the top half of my back, shoulder to shoulder, down to almost my waist.

Not a pulled muscle or anything - have had bad backs before and it wasn't anything like that. Sore when I breathed. Was considering waking dh and wringin Gp in the middle of the night, it was so bad.

Woke up this morning and was much better. Now again this evening it's sore again, when I breathe deeply.

Any ideas???! Chest infection?? (though I am asthmastic, I feel ok and have no temp). Odd! Thanks.

Just seen this. Sounds just like what I had - I had damaged muscles on my chest and trapezius due to poor posture. I was bf at the time which caused it. Cure was lots of relaxation and adjusting bf posture. The pain was intense though - hope you feel better soon!
