Well during football I hurt my upper back, it was probably the worst pain I have ever felt.
It was a problem I was dealing with for about a week or two with a little pain just playing through it because it wasn't a big deal, but then one day at practice I hurt it really bad, I'm not sure how I hurt it but it hurt whenever I hit anyone, either with my helmet or pushing them with my hands. Now the pain was so terrible I new I had something wrong and had to go to the doctor.
So it was about 7:00 p.m. then so I had to go to the immediate care as opposed to my doctor. So I waited 2 hours and then they said it was a strained trapezius muscle and gave me pain and anti-inflammatory medicine.
The pain that night and the next day was so bad I almost had to leave school, it hurt bad just sitting there making no movements, if i made the slightest movement there was a cringing pain. They said to be out of football and gym for the next 3 days.
Well I was out of football and gym for a week and it was slowly getting better. So today I dressed for gym and we played eclipse ball (like tennis but with a ball filled with air thats bigger) so when the ball got hit to my left side (the bad side) I hit it with both hands and it started hurting again. Now it hurts as I'm typing this and hurts again when I move. Its not as bad as originally before.
So I'm worried now that it is something more than a trapezius strain. It doesn't feel like a muscle pull. I have an appointment tomorrow with my real doctor, so I want to be prepared for what to ask him and things, hopefully he does an mri or something. It just seems like if its a muscle pull I should be able to swing a tennis racket after a week without activity.
Oh and it hurts when I breathe in deeply, if that helps.
I just want to heal as fast as possible because there are only 4 games left in the football season and its my senior year.
So what do you guys think?
I'll add a picture showing where it hurts, the red being the worst and orange being where it hurts a little or when i move a certain way.
