Why dose my right shoulder close to my neck hurt when I breath in hard?

Why dose my right shoulder close to my neck hurt when I breath in hard?

Muscle strain/spasm: As you inhale deeply, you expand your chest wall...And doing so, you move shoulder blades up and out, thus pulling on the muscles attaching to the upper and inner areas of the shoulder blade. If these muscles are strained somehow (common for people working on computer keyboards for long periods), they can be sore when you breath in deeply.

Be seen: Although there are multie potential causes, you would be well suited to be seen to rule out a cardiac or ply unset source if it is associated with difficulty breathing as you are describing.

A good medical checkup would be a good place to start. ...Read more

Pain from diaphragm: That may be pain from your diaphragm. This is the organ that moves up and down below your lungs when you breath in and out. When the diaphragm is irritated, pain is referred to your right shoulder. This is frequently exacerbated when you breath heavily. Not sure why you would have an irritated diaphragm. You should probably get it checked out because it wouldn't be normal in a 34 yo male. ...Read more

Back pain: It could be something musculoskeletal such as a bruised or broken rib or a muscular strain. In this case, you just need to wait it out. However, since you are having trouble breathing, you also need to consider a blood clot in your lung which can often present as back pain. I would recommend getting checked out by your PCP to make sure your vital signs (oxygen sat, blood pressure, HR) are normal. ...Read more
