    What does problem hardware feel like?

    For those of you who have had hardware problems:

    I've had a very sharp, sore pain in the upper, middle of my back for about 2 weeks now. It seems to be near the very top of my fusion. At night when I'm lying on my side to sleep, it sometimes turns into a burning sensation. I've experienced pain in this area and a bit lower at times in the past , but never the burning, and the pain always went away after a couple of days...this is not going away however. I know that in the past, the pain was due to me just overdoing something, usually reaching further than I should for something or turning more quickly than I should have, but I can't pinpoint anything that could have caused this. I'm wondering if it might be a screw or brackett coming loose or another type of hardware issue. Regardless, I will be calling my surgeon's office next week if the pain continues.

    That is probably a good idea. It is better to be safe than sorry. After all your talking about your back. Hope everything turns out ok.
