    Yippy!! I have spot, mid back(upper)that literally makes me hit the roof!! It aches in that area all on its own, but....theres one spot that sometimes accidently gets hit,and I'll see stars!!! very,very tender!! I've brought it up to my Rhuemy and she says its an FM tender point.
    its maddening~

    I have this, and my PT treats it. He says it's ribs being out of whack (obviously my terminology, not his!). He works on them very gently and the pain goes away! Sometimes there are tender points involved, but usually they are associated with the rib problem.

    I have this pain too! Like I am bruised on the spine but nothing is there. Physical Therapy taught me some stretches that helped a lot with this. Good Luck

    That's where the majority of my pain is....inbetween shoulder blades, neck, right on spine in middle of back. Got TJM that kind of makes my whole neck hurt.
