I have sharp pain under left ribcage that worsens when I inhale making it difficult to breathe, left shoulder pain and yellow stools? Blood results ok

See below: You describe pleurisy or pericarditis. If your pain is relieved sitting forward, worse lying on your back, you likely have pericarditis. If not, it's more likely pleurisy. These potentially can be serious symptoms and should be investigated. Do you use birth control pills? (cause blood clots); do you have fever? (may have pneumonia). There are other serious rare causes as well. ...Read more

Sharp pain in my left shoulder blade. Neck pain radiates behind my ear. Shoulder pain and soreness. And little arm soreness as well. Pinched nerve?

Discuss with MD: You have a lot going on for your age, please discuss this with your doctor, you may warrant some further testing. This is not a good forum for this question as we can not diagnose "pinched nerve" without examination and testing. Your doctor may order a nerve conduction test coupled with an emg, or an MRI if they have not done so already. Discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

Shoulder pain that started from a fall back Oct. 2014. increased soreness thru the months to wear now always in pain lifting up, backwards, at rest?

Frozen shoulder: First time in this forum. From the limited information you have provided it sounds like you have a frozen shoulder. This is based on the history of trauma to the shoulder area. I would like to know whether any x-rays were done at the time of the fall to rule out a fracture. If negative, you are presenting limitation in abduction and external rotation which is hallmark of the problem. ...Read more

Recently I have sharp stabbing right shoulder pain and it will slowly move up to my right ear what is wrong?

Pinched nerve.: I am not sure whether the pain is starting from the right ear or radiating to the right ear. It seems radicular pain due to nerve irritation. Watch out for any weakness of the muscles. It could be just transient irritation that can pass. The most important thing to do is watch for any progression and any additional symptoms. If you were older person I would worry about heart ...Read more

I have had shoulder pain and rib pain for about 6 months. Losing mobility of my arm. Hurts ribcage when I breathe. No break in ribs, 3 were displaced.

I have had shoulder pain and rib pain for about 6 months. Losing mobility of my arm. Hurts ribcage when I breathe. No break in ribs, 3 were displaced.

Complicated: If you have lingering displaced upper ribs, you may have something called thoracic outlet syndrome. Easy to test on physical exam, have your pcp or sports med doc examine. If no one has checked your cervical spine, make sure that has been checked out also to rule out radiculopathy. You might also consider manipulation by a chiropractor or do for the displaced ribs. Hope that helps, best of luck! ...Read more

I'm suddenly having shoulder pain that wakes me up at night. It stopped for a week, then came back. Very achy, sore, Aleve (naproxen) not helping. What is wrong?

Get it checked.: The shoulder is most complicated joint in the body and easy to injure. If you are young you can watch it and don't do anything that makes it hurt. It may get better over time. If you are older then you might as well figure an MRI to realy know what is wrong. Std x-rays not much benefit unless you had physical injury. Mri tells all! No radiation and you know what is wrong. Pcp can tell you! ...Read more

A couple weeks ago I woke up with neck pain an shoulder pain...like I slept wrong stiff neck....neck sore for a couple days an went away...but the dull aching nerve wracking pain is still hurting off an on in my shoulder....not a sharp pain but a dull irr

Possibly normal but?: In most cases it can be a pain which will persist for several weeks. The pain in the shoulder comes and goes so probably does not mean something bad but should gradually get better. If it persists then the area needs to be evaluated and need to see your Dr. Use heat and gentle range of motion with some NSAID like Ibuprofen if not contraindicated. I hope this is helpful for you. ...Read more
