Hello, ihave been having very sharp pains in my left shoulder blade that shoots up to my heart. Should I be worried?
Dificult on line. It is very difficult to answer questions regarding chest pain on line. Chest pains are multifactorial & detailed questions re the age of the patient, character of the symptoms and associated medical history require a more detailed evaluation if symptoms concern the patient.
