Diagnose me!

Okay not really but I did just google my symptoms and the first thing that popped up was “Do I have cancer?” Awesome. This has been ongoing for the last couple years. There is a spot on my back that… I’m always aware of. It’s kind of hard to describe. It feels a bit like the pins & needles feeling you get when a body part is falling asleep or like my skin is crawling in a very specific spot. It’s a quarter sized spot below my left shoulder blade. I’ve mentioned it to my OB who wasn’t too concerned. It was coming and going back then but I’d chalked it up to poor ergonomics at the office. If I straightened my posture and made sure I wasn’t putting any pressure on my elbows it seemed to go away. This week it started up again but hasn’t gone away. I’m aware of it all the time. It’s a very odd sensation, more annoying than anything. I had some trouble falling asleep with it last night and it distracts me when I’m sitting fairly still. Anybody have something similar or know what it could be? I’ll call my OB next week to update her on the PPD and mention it again so don’t worry I’m not using GroupThink as a replacement for real doctors. Just my own googling.
