Another common cause is an irritation of a thoracic nerve in the middle back. In either case, rest and possible use of an antiinflammatory is a good start, consider being seen if it does not improve. ...Read more

Unchanged-good!: There are many causes for pain that is unilateral and in the posterior-upper back. Subscapular bursitis is quite common; surascapular palsy is another, and there are more. You need to see a doctor who specializes in pain diagnosis; physical medicine specialist or a rheumatology specialist, or an orthopedic surgeon. I believe the root causes will be determined more quickly. ...Read more

Varies: There are a lot of possibilities and i would encourage you to get checked. Many potential causes are musculoskeletal and quite benign, such as a subscapular bursitis or a thoracic radiculopathy. But there are more potentially dangerous conditions including the possibility it is an abnormal presentation of cardiac ischemia. A detailed exam and appropriate tests can usually determine the cause. ...Read more

Depends: Peri scapular pain can be from either cervical or shoulder problems. But if pain is exacerbated by deep breath then either inflammation of lining of lungs ( pluritis) or inflammation of rib joint can be the cause. Nsaids may be first thing to try. ...Read more

Orthopedic.  The back of my right shoulder blade is giving me a lot of pain.  MRI didn't show anything. No recent injury  im right hande dominant side?

Varies: An MRI is a good structural test, but it does not show things that are not structural; inflammation is a good example of this and is not always picked up on an MRI. Subscapular bursitis and a pinched nerve are among the more common causes of pain in that area that do not always show up on an MRI of the shoulder. ...Read more
