Sore muscles between shoulder blades

Common Questions and Answers about Sore muscles between shoulder blades


I went to my doctor and they sent me to a physical therapist who taught me excercises to help strengthen the muscles between my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blade</span>s which they said needed to be strengthened to hold your head up all day. Next I went to a chiropractor which said that my spine around my neck was sloping forward instead of in the natural back position which can cause spasms in the area between the shoulder blades.
Also, over 30 years ago, in approx 8th grade had gym accident resulting in slightly swollen vertabrae between <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blade</span>s which once in awhile bothers me somewhat (e.g. soreness in muscles around it, slight pulsating pain, but, sometimes these go away). Also, less frequently, the muscles in my leg above my knee also get very sore to the touch. This was true before the whiplash described above.
Hi everyone, Appreciate your help with these two questions - 1. I'm suffering from stiff neck muscles and muscle cramps in my shoulder blades & hamstrings. Been like that for a year now, from when I wake up to when I go to sleep. I have no conditions except Hypothroidism. is that a possible hypothroidism symptom? I've seen these in many symptoms lists, but I would appreciate hearing of any experience you might had/seen of these. 2.
Since then the pain is in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span>, collar bone, mid arm (between the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> and elbow), elbow and wrist. my elbow is now very sore after typing or writing if it's not well supported on a desk. Although it doesn't hurt to the touch. my range of motion has decreased and I'm losing strength as well as the same symptoms are beginning in my R arm now. I've had an xray which showed nothing. Went to PT but wasn't getting better.
Hi there! The majority of my migraines start in my neck and between my shoulder blades as "back and neck pain" like really sore trigger points, and then travels to behind one eye and feels like a regular migraine. The space between my shoulder blades is the WORST problem area on me... it is where most of my migraines both start and end... where the tension starts and ends up. The migraines themselves always move to one eye, but...
I havent had much trouble with my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> but then recently my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>so</span>re all the time. I havent had any surgery as since the last re asorption the shoulder didnt hurt. I read my previous post where I stated it is reactive and now I cant remember how I knew that ! I know there are two types degenerative and reactive but cant remember if I was told it was reactive. Not sure if this link will work
i woke up a few weeks ago with dull pain in my left breast, and its never gone away. i do feel some tightness in my upper back between the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blade</span>s no other sypmtoms that i can pin point no lumps, sometimes pain under arm and into left shoulder. i have an ekg scheduled for tomorrow, the pain is very mild its more annoying than painful, i am 52 and work in an office on computers and on the phone a lot. but nothing makes this go away not excersing or laying down or standing or stretching.
my pain is caused from my posture and it is muscular. I have all these knots all in the area between my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blade</span>s and my spine, all up and down my back. While I was pregnant a perk of my insurance was physical therapy 3 times a week and massages, but after I quit going the pain is back worse than ever and in more places. It is in my left chest muscles bad. sometimes I think I am having a heart condition or something.
I am having left forearm pain, my left middle finger is partially numb, I have a pain between my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blade</span>s, the back of my neck feels numb, and my index finger is almost completely numb. It has been this way for over a month now and I am on 600mg Gabapentin and hydrocodone and have been on these meds for over a month and the Dr.s are doing little to help. They put me on 4 weeks of steroids and it did nothing. my initial MRI showed mild bulging in my C-5 disk and that is pretty much it.
I can't believe I stumbled upon this forum. I have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>so</span>re breast/armpit/back/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> pain. It has come on since I had a panic attack last month. The feelings change from tingling to burning to sore to pulsing to itchy. It is primarily on my left side, but I get a little on my right at times. I am on zoloft for the anxiety and working with a therapist, but the pain is still there. I thought there must be something seriously wrong with me. I can't believe how many others mention this same pain.
Now both hands are numb esspecially the last two fingers on both hands. my arms and between my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blade</span>s burn like fire. I hardly have any control of my hands. I cant pick up small items or even turn the pages in a book. my doctor did a post-op MRI and he said everything looks great. He put me on Nuerotin about 3 weeks ago, but all it does is make me very dizzy. I've had PH and it hasn't helped. so I continue to take Percicet 7.5 and muscle relaxers every 4 to 6 hours.
I also have neck and upper back pain after C5-6 fusion. An Oropod did my surgery. I eventually went to a Neuro in Rapid City, SD but it appears that there is not a problem. I have had another MRI. No problem. my new Neuro is doing an Intrathecal CT on Jan 3, 2007. my guess is that he will not see anything.
Then about a year later I started having severe upper back pain . I t hurts when I take a breath. Its in between my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blade</span>s Ihave had 45 mri s cat scan bone scans and x rays even been checked for spinal tap for infections. About 3 years ago at age 27 I could no longer hold down my job and had to quit. Im still having test done and seeing the dodtor every month for help on trying to find out how to fix me where I can get my life back. A ll he can tell me is its degerative disk disease .
I was worried it was a problem with my lungs because, It was such an uncomfortable and different pain I thought it couldn,t be the muscles in my back- exactly where you have expressed your pain to be between the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blade</span>s. Mine was more centered on the right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> blade though, but just ove the spine nevertheless. It did hurt somtimes when I breathed in and at other times it did not. I would go on for days useing heat patches over the affected area and that did help.
The area between my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blade</span>s is also <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>so</span>re. I now have tingling in my arms and legs. If I extend both arms out straight and rotate them, I can hear cracking or popping in the area between my shoulder blades. The same sound as when you crack your knuckles. What could this possibly be and should my next doctor be Neuro or Ortho? I also have an incisional hernia in my lower left abdomen from a previous hernia surgery that needs to be surgically repaired.
There's a bit of soreness in my upper back between the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blade</span>s and the top of the back of the neck to. Thoughts?
when i play piano or sit at a computer without a headrest for more than an hour, i get a band of pain between my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blade</span>s. i've got a musical commitment that is requiring me to play 3 hours or so of piano a day for the next 6 days, and it's hurting quite a bit (the next day as well). i can handle the pain, though, as long as i'm not making the protruding disc worse and risking turning it into a herniation. does this sound like just muscular problems and a "sore back"?
I purchased an expensive pillow and have now found i wake up with minor pain and seem to be about 80% during the day but by the end of the day and at night i have bad upper back pain between my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blade</span>s, my traps and neck... my work is not strenuous and since having this i dont do anything that could be a cause of muscle strain or anything and really try to baby my back and neck. so my questions is what could be the cause of this and where do i go from here?
Having a disc herniation between your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blade</span>s can be a terrible thing, the bulging disc pushes on the nerve root (and sometimes spinal cord), which is precisely why you are feeling wierdness in your left arm and hand. The nerve root that goes out from T-6 on the left side is apparently being pushed on by that ruptured disc. Surgery there is not easy, so docs may want to try moderate treatment, physical therapy, meds, before resorting to surgery.
back in between <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blade</span>s and spine(stabbing,tense,throbing),lower back(burning,tense,throbing)Limbs(burning,tense,throbing,numbness,tingling). I have obviously been to many doctors,specialist, with no good solid reason for all the muscle pain. I used to be very active as a kid first started getting first pulled, strained muscle around twelve thirteen during sports but didn't think much of until 17-18 when I started to have nerve problems as well.
comes from the intercostal muscles that are between our ribs (remember, we have ribs underneath and between our <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blade</span>s). It is the same thing as if we squeezed our hands really tight - after awhile, they will be very sore. However, pains in these areas are also commonly caused by, beleive it or not, gas. Not gas in our ribs or back of course, but regular gas in our digestive system.
I felt a crunch in the back of my neck, right between my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blade</span>s. my neck remained stiff for 3 days after the incident and I was unable to turn my head due to muscle tightness. After about a week the muscles spasms calmed down but I still noticed a severe pinch right right in the joint of my spine between my shoulder blades.The area around the joint felt sore like it was bruised but there was no discoloration.
sometimes I feel timple muscles moving, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>so</span>re between <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blade</span>s. Hard to concentrate. Had a MRI to rule out tumor - came back negative. Currently take .5mg lorazepam, which knocks the edge off. Severe problem sleeping. sometimes eyes water at night. Had for so long, my mood is very tempermental. Short attention span and loss of short-term memory. Any suggestions??
I really believe that the muscles that get tensed up (chest, between <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blade</span>s, neck, back of the head) actually get sore from constantly being bunched up. I ran that by the doc and he said he didn't have any better idea. sometimes ibuprofin helps better then the Ativan because just getting rid of the pain that causes the anxiety helps to break the cycle. Love...
worse in the am or as the day goes on? pain between the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blade</span>s at all? i may be able to help you I AM 59 YEARS OLD. my MAJOR PAIN is IN my ARMS, LOWER BACK AND shoulderS. I DO OFFICE WORK WHICH INVOLVES A LOT OF COMPUTER INPUT, PREPARING AND FILING CLIENT FILES, TALKING ON THE PHONE WITH THE STATE COURTS, MAKING COPIES, A FAIR AMOUNT OF WALKING BETWEEN my DEPARTMENT AND OTHER AREAS IN THE COMPANY.
Hi Everyone, I came down with a mild flu roughly 11 weeks ago and have suffered with muscle and ligament pain from cramps, tightness and aches ever since granted it has improved since it began so that I'm not in constant pain all day like I was but I have muscles that since this whole thing started have pulled tight and remained that way, I get quick sharp pains usually in my legs and arms ( like the muscle is about to cramp but doesnt ) cramps on and off that leave my muscles sore particularly
hips, rib cage, lower back, upper back between the shoulder blades (especially in one particular point), chest, throat, back of head, left knee, and recently a finger on my right hand. This pain travels constantly: one day it's my back hurting, one day it's my chest, one day my pelvic area...when these muscles hurt, i can put a finger on them and they are very sensitive/painful. - Nausea - Heartburns - Fatigue - Bloating and belching - Pain below the sternum (stomach?
It felt wonderful. Then about a few days ago my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> started to do what me right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> has been doing for over 3 years. BUT now I am rocking back and fourth here crying in so so so so much pain from my hands down to my toes. It is so painful and it is all over in my body. Does this sound like some arthritis going on all over or What?? I just can NOT take this kinda pain it is just really bringing me down and scaring the **** out of me.
my throat was fine for a week in August and then it returned along with sore glands in my neck and a very sharp pain between my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blade</span>s on my back. I also had a strange numb sensation across my nose, below my eyes and also on my ears and the side of my head. Those symptoms went away but I am now experiencing them again along with pins and needles on my hands and feet.
