I have excercised and have a very tight right shoulder muscle, right neck muscle, and a vein over right eyebrow that has just popped out. All related?

Varies: It varies somewhat based upon the cause of the problem. If it is a soft tissue problem such as a "pulled muscle" or a peri scapular bursitis, rest, an NSAID and ice could potentially help. If it does not improve or if it worsens, being seen for a specific diagnosis would probably be a good idea. ...Read more

Right shoulder pain: and chest pain may be correlated, but it is not likely to be cardiac related. At least not from the blockage or heart attack stand point. You may have some muscle strain or pull so try some Ibuprofen or Tylenol (acetaminophen). Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more

Because it has lasted 3 years, you should be evaluated by a specialist. Heat and cold may help - especially heat at this stage from topical creams or hot packs.
