go to an osteopath, I suffered for 2 weeks before going and the relief is blissful!

you need a muscle relaxant to enable the nerve to be come untrapped

i normally get prescribed valium for it in a small dose

i feel utmost sympathy

Does yours feel numb when it is trapped? It feels weird, i had an mri with it before to check no disks slipped and that came back ok so must be the nerve

trapped nerves usually give a shooting pain

Mine was in my upper back so had pins & needles in my fingers and pain all down my arm.

This is in my upper back kinda below my shoulder but just feels numb and tingly and aches like mad. Do you think it is a trapped nerve then if no shooting pain?

I didn't have shooting pains it was pretty much constant. Go to the GP.

mine was lower back, maybe thats why i had shooting pains

made me yell when i had to lift shopping and wheelchairs etc
