Why is there pain at different points of the body, like behind the right shoulder or around the collarbone, if the attack happens in the gallbladder?

Why is there pain at different points of the body, like behind the right shoulder or around the collarbone, if the attack happens in the gallbladder?

Referred pain: Occurs when the body gets confused about where the pain is located. In gallbladder pain, the nerve that goes to the area is the same one that goes to the tip of scapula, so you think it is coming from there. Another example: when you get irritation of diaphragm, you get pain on top of shoulder. ...Read more

MRI will not: Solve your discomfort on your shoulder and collarbone. You may just have strained or pulled a muscle when you started exercising.

Dislocated my right shoulder in january of 2013, reduced, slung it with pt. My right collarbone looks different & right side of neck feels tense. Why?

Dislocated my right shoulder in january of 2013, reduced, slung it with pt. My right collarbone looks different & right side of neck feels tense. Why?

Dislocation?: After a shoulder dislocation and sling immobilization disuse atrophy of the shoulder muscles can occur and cause the clavicle to appear more prominent. Also, with more scapular than glenohumeral (sh. Jt.) relative motion occurring your trapezius may be seeing more motion and " tenser"... Of course, an acromioclavicular "separation" of the shoulder can cause these 'changes' more quickly... ...Read more

I have this dull achey pain in my right shoulder around my collar bone. It hurts when I reach forwards, push my shoulder down or move it. Any help?

How Long?: If you haven't had this pain very long and haven't suffered any significant injury, it may be a strain of your ac joint (where the collarbone meets the shoulder blade). Often avoiding activities that cause the pain for a while will result in improvement. If you have had pain and trouble for some time, I would recommend you see a shoulder specialist. Http://www.

I broke my collarbone, and now I am having shoulder pain. Could they be related? I was 10 when I broke my collarbone and now I am 21.

Unlikely: Unless you broke the bone severely and close to the acromion (near the ac joint) the chances of a common mid 1/3 clavicle fx. Causing shoulder pain 10 years later are remote. Common causes of shoulder pain in 21yo females include shoulder instability, tendinitis, referred pain from neck, etc. See your ors if your pain continues. Best of luck! ...Read more

It is possible you have a fracture that goes into the ac joint or a ligament injury that needs surgical treatment. ...Read more

I have bones sticking out on top my shoulder that look like my collarbones. What is the problem?

Is there a problem?: If they look like collarbones, they probably are. (Assuming you have looked at photos of normal collarbones.) If you have ever been in an accident it is possible you may have broken a collarbone, and if it did not heal perfectly in line the bones might be a bit more prominent or asymmetric. (Usually it would have hurt---a lot!) Many people have asymmetric collarbones, we are just born that way ...Read more
