What causes gas pain in my left shoulder blade? This discussion is related to <a href="/posts/Digestive-Disorders---Gastroenterology/Pain-in-left-shoulder-blade--left-arm/show/888381">Pain in left shoulder blade, left arm</a>.
I have experienced a severe pain in the high back between my shoulder blades bringing me to my knees, just after relaxing in bed. My husband messaged my back and walking up and down the hallway for about 5 minutes and setting up in the recliner for another 15 minutes. Was this just a gas bubble pain or something else?
After the surgery for a few days (3 days) i had BAD shoulder pain which i was told this is normal because of the gas they give you in surgery. It did go away after 3 days and i felt better than i had in awhile. Now im starting to notice my shoulder is starting to hurt again, does anyone know if this is this still from the gas or should i be concerned? If anyone else who had gallbladder surgery had this happen to them How long did it take to get over the shoulder pain?
the surgeon removed the stent, and stone, and also his gallbladder, but he was in a lot of pain, and the op lasted for 4 hours. now, 4 weeks later he has a lot of pain in his left shoulder, which his doctor has no idea what is causing it. we gather from your posts that this is probably trapped wind, but it has been 4 weeks since his operation. we wonder how long this will take to resolve itself, as we are getting no help elsewhere!
But I swear, it's the same symptoms I read and talked to others about the gallbladder, just it's on the left, upper back, under shoulder blade, continuing around to the front and closing in on my chest. Can't take deep breaths, lift my arms above my head or reach down.
I had to sleep sitting in the recyliner for two days because the gas was in my shoulder and it hurt to much to lay down. Try the tea and gas x. I know it hurts but this too shall pass. Hope you get to feeling better.
Each month about the time on PMS I get a horrible pain almost like a pinched nerve in my left top shoulder. It could be so severe that it hurts when I drive in my car, to only coming in sharp pains when I move a certain way. Again it is only around the time I get my period. It is always a let down to get this pain because my husband and I are trying to concieve. I just hope this isnt anything effected that in any way. So thank you and again hope this makes sense.
It doesn't matter if I'm hungry or full, walking or sitting, My diet hasn't changed and neither have my bowel habits. The pain will many times run up into my shoulder. I have tried gas relief products, and everything else I can think of. Sometimes it feels like its "twisted' in there and when I am finally able to move a little, it straightens out. I don't ever have heartburn or anything else. Just this excrutiating pain Any ideas?
I had a mri scan but all that came back was mild tendonitis mild arthritis and evidence of 2 small bursa , my GP and pain clinic doctor said that the result of my scan does not warrant the amount of pain I am in. I have an appointment in oct to see a shoulder specialist hopefully he will help me.

Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! Left shoulder pain can be due to gas built up by chronic constipation. However, the possibility of a heart issue cannot be ruled out completely. Hence consult a doctor for a 12 lead EKG. Chronic constipation can be due to diet poor in roughage or fiber, dehydration, diabetes, hypothyroidism, colon disorders, irritable bowel syndrome, diverticular diseases, cancers, severe acidity etc. It can also be due to milk allergy and other food allergies.
I work a lot, so sometimes it's difficult to fit myself in his schedule. About two months ago, I was experiencing an extremely sharp pain behind my right shoulder, and on the direct opposite side in the right part of my chest. I can only feel it if I inhale deeply or if I'm overworking that part of my body, but the pain literally take my breath away-- I stop what I'm doing immediately because it's so sudden and sharp! However, this pain comes and goes.
Little by little the pain got worse and worse and finally settled deep in my shoulder with the pain radiating into my upper back, upper chest and down my right arm (NO IT'S NOT A HEART ATTACK, I KNOW THAT) making my arm lose some control; my hand would kind of "make a claw", just for a few seconds but I had no strength and if no matter what I did with my shoulder, moving it, stretching it, putting next to my body, etc...anything to alleviate the excruciating pain, nothing worked.
My right ovary was removed because of the existence a big sized cyst, and from that day everytime am about to start, during my periods or when am ovulating i get a sharp pain in my right shoulder. What caused it and how can it be treted?
The most noticeable changes have been a loud popping noise when I move my shoulder (particularly the right one) side to side, and a severe tenderness of the muscles in each one (surprisingly, more on the left side). I've had an X-Ray done and the doctor said that the bones looked fine. Another one of my doctors said that it could be a tendon issue. Any clue? What should my next steps be?
Recently though(in the past months or so) I have been having terrible pain in my left shoulder blade and left shoulder. The pain starts underneath my left breast and radiates to these other areas. It feels as if something is caught underneath my left ribcage. The chest pain I have had for almost a year and a half (all cardiac workups are negative). This shoulder pain is new though.
I am glad I found this information. I have also been experiencing exessive gas associated with pain in upper left chest...I have been afraid to go to sleep in fear I might die of a heart attack or stroke. Belching and passing gas does help some. I am taking 50mg of Toprolol.
Hi, I had a laparoscopy done yesterday and I was okay last night, but TODAY I AM EXPERIENCING TERRIBLE GAS IN MY ABDOMEN, THAT (LIKE THE OTHER LADIES HERE) SHOOTS TO MY SHOULDER. OH I BEGGING SOMEONE TO HELP ME. THE PAIN IS HORRIBLE. I JUST NEED THIS GAS TO GET OUT OF ME. I KNOW IT'S NORMAL, BUT I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE. PLEASE TELL ME A SURE FIRE WAY TO GET RID OF THIS GAS. I CAN'T LAY DOWN FLAT ON MY BACK BECAUSE THAT MAKES IT HURT MORE.
My doctor said if they last more than 3 minutes I should call for help (she said 911). The sharp pain in your shoulder may be gas. I've read that sharp pains usually are not associated with heart. If you can, get your heart checked for peace of mind if nothing else.
It can be painful and uncomfortable when an attack is coming on, but movement does help the gas to move around and hopefully become untrapped. This morning 6/13/14 I woke up out of a dead sleep in pain from the trapped gas. I have not been able to sleep. I drank several glasses of hot peppermint tea and it helped slightly, but not enough for my comfort. I had fennel seeds in the cabinet and have dione a little digging on those. It apparently helps with digestion and helps relieve trapped gas.
I've never had any serious health issues, I'm athletic (run marathons), very fit - yet I occasionally get that very sharp pain in my left shoulder when I've indulged in food and wine - like a knife stuck in up there just below where the shoulder goes up to the neck. Could it be rich foods? Seems to happen after/during good meals and red wine! Normally, I don't eat fried foods, butter, chips, ice cream or fatty foods in general.
could this result in pain n the back and shoulder? I'll guess yes in the back, no in the shoulders.
Whenever I do a bench press, or lift weights in the air above my head, my shoulder joints always seem to crack. Theres no pain, or discomfort, but the crack noise worries me.
Please help I am a2 days from 2 weeks post op and the gas in my left shoulder is killing me. it goes from bad to worse but never goes away! It sometimes goes down my arm and up into my neck jaw and ear. If I eat anything im in sevier pain for at least a couple of hours then just pain for the time till I eat again. Its not even worth eating, but then I het so hungry. will this ever go away!!!!
