Doubtful: not your classic gall bladder symptoms. Gall bladder issues really would not change or occur with movements of you arm. Sounds like a sprain. Get eval. best wishes. ...Read more

I have a constant pain in my inner right shoulder blade. Sometimes it's a burning sensation. Gets worse during stress. Is it a knot or pinched nerve?

Multiple Things: Many sources can result in referred pain to the shoulder blade. Along with the neurogenic sources like cervical (c6 for example) and the suprascapular nerve, we also see many patients with occult shoulder pathology have referred pain to this area. Patients who are very flexible can also have occult shoulder instability refer pain to this area. Please consider seeing your doctor. ...Read more

44 yr old male. For 2yrs constant pain between bottom of right shoulder blade and spine. I weight train 4 to 5 days a week. Muscle or something else ?

Most Likely: A muscular problem. Since it is chronic, imaging of the spine is appropriate to include x-rays and mri. These may not show much more that normal degenerative changes. If the pain is wrapping around the chest along the rib then there could be a nerve impingement. Good physical therapy and dry needling could help. I am sure you have been to the doc about this problem by now. If not, then go. ...Read more

Muscle spasm: In a 29 year old, with this information, think muscle spasm. It could also be other things but less likely. I would try rest, hear, stretching. Also antiinflammatories. It should get better with rest. ...Read more

I woke up this morning with a sharp stabbing pain near my shoulder blade on my right side. It is constant pain, though gets worse when I breathe.

Be seen: I would be seen. While it could very well be musculoskeletal, pain in that area that is worse with breathing should be evaluated for possible cardiac and pulmonary causes, such as a pulmonary embolus for example. ...Read more
