Pain neck to shoulder blade

Common Questions and Answers about Pain neck to shoulder blade

pain

And the neck remains very tender for about half a minute after. The extremity and length of pain varies each time. His shoulder blade pain is caused by any motion which involves stretching the back, neck, arms, and shoulders. When he does try to stretch he feels limited, as though his muscles were not loose enough to extend to their full length. The bones in the affected areas 'crack' or 'pop' given any motion which involves the concerned muscles.
My pain story began when I was 17 years old (about 6 years ago), I perfectly remember that day. It was my ballroom practice ( I was dancing about 10years at that time) and I felt a strange fatigue, dizziness. And then it all started… In addition, I would like to mention that I had Lyme disease when I was a child, but my mother spotted this in time and we went to the doctor who prescribed me antibiotics course.
Went to phisio, which helped with the initial horrible pain, but now I still have shoulder and upper shoulder blade pain, and also neck pain, occasionally along with it.There are times when the pain is still felt in my chest as well, although numerous trips to the hospital has assured me that mu heart is fine.(still a very scary feeling!)I also occasionally have a numbness in my left arm. Please help with suggestions!!! I've had an MRI done on my neck, and that was fine too.
In the beginning, the left side of my neck would hurt from my shoulder blade on up to my neck. Now my left shoulder around the rotator cuff hurts. I can lay on my back as the pressure of my bed against my shoulder blade just makes everything ache more. My neck has calmed down and no longer hurts due to this just that darn shoulder blade and around that area and my left shoulder. I'm not much of one to go to drs and I've tried researching this on my own.
I was first referred to a shoulder specialist, but when I described my pain in more detail, he sent me to a spine specialist who eventually discovered I had a bad disc in my neck that was causing the pain. I had surgery, but i tried acupuncture to control the pain before surgery, and it helped a little. If it has not healed in a month, don't wait too long to see a specialist. The anti-inflammatories (i.e. naproxen, ibuprofen, meloxicam) did not help me at all.
One lady told me that her mother had left sided shoulder blade pain for 4-5 years and it turned out to be her gallbladder. Then one other customer said his neice had that same pain and it was Hodgkins disease, he kept talking about a lymph node, but I don't think you have lymph nodes in your shoulder blade do you?? (he might have meant clavicle, he kept saying scapula)...
I have not been to any medical professionals or taken any medication for the pain. I would like to see the opinions of this forum before deciding to visit a doctor. P.S. Luckily I am barely flexible to massage that part of my back, and as of now, is by far the most comforting solution. What are some other things I can try?
Injury to the neck or shoulder, by leading to strained joints and ligaments may set the stage for more upper back pain over the shoulder blade. While usually a sharp or aching pain, it may be burning in nature. Overusing the muscles of the upper back can also cause pain. Fibromyalgia, a soft tissue form of rheumatism may also cause burning and aching in the shoulder blade area.
I have been having pain in my shoulder blade area, extending into my neck, and arm, all on my right side....has been going on for two weeks now..some days are better, some are worse...sometimes it seems to extend down my right side, and into my legs...dont know how i hurt it...did lift a chair..... is this muscular...or could it be a nerve problem...i have been to the doctor, before this incident...i had arthritis in the hips...i put heat on it, or get a massge, it gets better...
I woke up one morning with a stiff neck and with more studying, I found the pain to be behind my right shoulder blade. I have tried many things. My doctor gave me some muscle relaxers in an attempt to make the muscle relieve it's tension. Also I have used a muscle stimulant on it...it's a device that stimulates the muscle with electrical impulses that "work" the muscle. Tried about everything, but to no avail.
Pain around my bottom of shoulder blade for over 6 months. Stiff upon waking up, some days it goes away but most days it stays. Sitting up, without back support, can be a pain. Laying down or laying propped up, hurts. Let me give an example: I can be propped up, reading a book, holding a book in my left hand, puts me in so much pain in this area. When I turn my back from side to side, it hurts. I do get a lot of muscle strains in this area as well. The pain is always there.
I've been feeling the same pain for about 4-5 years now. It starts in my neck/ear area and runs down to my right shoulder blade area. I feel a constant burning sensation deep inside my shoulder blade area. I've gotten a cortisone shot that didn't do a thing. I also got x-rays, etc that show no problems. Doctors have no idea what the problem is. It is so frustrating!! There is obviously something wrong in there. I'm 30 and in good physical shape.
So I'm only 14 years old and I was just laying in bed when I felt my left shoulder blade start to hurt. now it's killing me and I can't lay down to get to sleep. And crying puts a whole extra strain on it. Could a person my age have any of these complications above Or is it simply a one night muscel pain?
Shoulder blade or scapula pain must be evaluated to make sure that the shoulder itself and other parts of the body are not involved. Referred pain from other areas such as the gall bladder, heart, aorta, fallopian tubes, abdominal organs, diaphragm, and lungs should be ruled out. Muscle strain/spasm, tendon and soft tissue issues including the rotator cuff and bursa should also be considered.
The pain goes into my neck a bit when I press my shoulder, I'm fairly happy this pain is not heart related. But wonder what I can do to treat it.
I have similar pain issues... I get pain in my right arm, shouler, clavicle and back under my shoulder blade and neck. I've been told the same as you, bulging disk and that with repetative strain it will reoccur. Also had a rib out of place and hard to breath, but been told my injury was old and that pain will reoccur. Just recently i was diagnosed with Thoracic Outlet Syndrome but this may not be in your case. I've had cortisone shots but my best success at relief is with the chiropractor.
I was running only for about 2 minutes and I had pain in my shoulder blade and the top of my shoulder, up my neck and that night down my arm too. The first day I did cry. It has now been 5 days and the pain is tolerable, but uncomfortable. I was on my couch for 3 days just resting after the first day. I do notice throughout the day like today my neck is starting to hurt again and my shoulder blade. I did schedule a Dr's appt on Friday.
This intensity eventually subsided but i have had acute pain in the area ever since. The pain seems to be in inside lower area of the shoulder blade and it has stayed with me in varied degrees of intensity every single day. It is aggravated by turning my head to the far right, far left or up and down and can transfer to my right shoulder blade as well. In addition to this, about six months ago i started to experience severe neck pain.
Many conditions can cause pain in the neck and shoulder area. The most common reasons of neck pain with shoulder involvement and also upper arm would be spinal issues. Neck pain may arise due to muscular tightness in both the neck and upper back, and pinching of the nerves emanating from the cervical vertebrae. Joint disruption in the neck creates pain, as does joint disruption in the upper back.

I'm having servere shoulder blade pain in my left shoulder. I'm 16 and varsity qb for the highschool here so I get banged up a bit and am in good physical shape. Anyways, one day in the gym I was doing squats with the bar on my back below my neck like your supposed to and while driving up to rack the bar my shoulder popped from the weight and it was terrible pain. It hurts to breathe deep or move my right arm (throwing arm) across my body. And same for my left arm.
I too have had ongoing pain in my left shoulder blade region that extends up into my neck on the left side and into my left shoulder. Mines my trapizious muscle and foreward head syndrome that causes my pain.
