Cholecystitis: The gall bladder problem presents this way when blocked or inflamed. Be aware of a yellow tinge to the "whites" of you eyes and the hurry to a surgeon. If you must wait, avoid fatty foods like the plague. There are, less often, more serious problems. For both, see a surgeon or GI specialist. ...Read more

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 ?

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

I have constant pain in my left upper shoulder blade. I notice it a lot when i'm walking to work or doing dishes. I noticed the pain when i started working a job that requires more movement. I have been in no accidents.

Any : Any pain on the chest (this would be considered the back portion of the chest, not just the back), must be taken seriously. Please see your provider for an evaluation and possibly an ekg and complete evaluation. Different possibilities include cardiac pain, which would be worse with exertion, and often accompanied by other symptoms including shortness of breath, feeling sweaty, heart racing or irregular, and radiation of the pain to the arm or jaw. Lung pain would include symptoms of being worse with deep breath, cough, or shortness of breath. Muscular causes would be worse with movement, and relieved with holding still. Muscular pain can be improved with physical therapy, stretching, and oral medications such as tylenol (acetaminophen) or advil. Please see your doctor though for a complete evaluation. ...Read more

Get checked out: The question is why are you having the pain. You need to be examined and your pain further evaluated to identify the cause so the appropriate treatment plan can be developed. You should see your primary doc first and they can refer you to a specialist if needed. If you have never been treated, it sounds like it is time. Many of these problems respond well to physical therapy. ...Read more
