    If the pain is between your shoulder blades it probably isn't your spine...
    I have had bad backs on and off all my life. I have a dislocated tailbone that can't be fixed ( fell on icy concrete step) and my SI joint becomes inflamed if I walk too long or sit on soft surfaces.

    The shoulder blade pain is probably muscular. I found a lot of my pain went away when I followed the physio's advice and strengthened my back muscles. It is worth a visit. Ask specifically for exercises that will strengthen your upper back.

    I spent some time in Jakarta many years ago. I'm sure it has changed a lot since then!

    Yes, Aleve is an over-the-counter pain medication similar in effect to aspirin, ibuprophen, tylenlol, etc. The difference with Aleve is it is supposed to last for 24 hours, so just one pill a day.

    I also have back pains. But the one that bothers me the most is the sharp pain running from the right side of my neck down my scapula (shoulder blade). I was told once that every hour or so you should stop sewing and do shoulder shrugs...lift your shoulders up towards your ears and down again. Also rotating your shoulders frontwards and backwards and moving your head in a circular motion to the right and the left is also helpful. Thanks to all for their suggestions.

    Another simple help for me when my back begins to twinge, is to change seats for awhile. I have a chair with a straight back and a padded bench with no back. I find moving back and forth between these two really helps keep my back from stiffening up. I love to sew when I'm in the mood, and hate to have to stop for back pain....who knows when the mood will strike again! :lol:
