Patient : I have been experiencing intermittent, dull and sometimes sharp pain in my thoracic region of my back. The dull pain seems to linger and I notice it more while sitting or laying down. The sharp pain comes and goes for very short periods of time. I beleive this has been lingering for about 6-8 months. I am a 45 year old male with no adverse medical history other than a self inflicted occassional high blood pressure and cholesteral. I am concerned that, because this has lasted so long, it may be related to an aortic aneurysm...hope not. Little Help!
