The burning back pain continues in my mid-back just to the right of my spinal cord. It is intermittent most of the time but on occasion it can be there for hours. At worst it is a nuisance and has not required any pain medication. The neuro agreed that is was most likely the MS when I saw him last – like I needed that confirmation. More rarely the pain will also be on my right shoulder blade. That has been more recent and mostly only in the evening.
