Experiencing pain in the upper left back
Started with a stiff neck, kept working out without letting it settle.
Pain has persisted for over 3 weeks now. Initially, range of motion of the neck was limited due to stiff neck. That issue has since improved drastically, almost back to normal, slight discomfort at the extreme ranges of motion.
Pain is best described as an aching pain that manifests in several areas: sometimes in the pectorals, elbows, or traps, as well as the general upper left back areas, all on the left side. No pain in the neck. Pain has also improved over the weeks, on a scale of 1-10 it would be a 3 or 4 most of the time. Pain is experienced at seemingly random times, unrelated to movement.
Have seen a physio, was told it would resolve in 6-8 weeks. Also advised to do certain neck exercises to help speed up the recovery process.
Is there cause for more concern or is this fairly normal?
