Does it hurt to move your neck? Any abdominal problems?
I can move my neck freely. No abdominal problems whatsoever. Neck feels stiff at times though
Any recent fall or injury of any sorts? Any medications you are on? Any medical illness like diabetes?
Feels like a knot in my upper back under the left shoulder blade though
I did slide into home hard 2 months ago in a baseball game. No meds
I'm generally comfortable but it feels like food and drink pass through my shoulder blade on the left and I sometimes feel it when I belch. Wife rubbed the area and I felt it to the touch slightly
No known illnesses that I am aware of
It could be a neck spasm with pain radiating to the shoulder or injured shoulder blade (scapula) during the accident.Some times abdominal pain can radiate to the shoulder pain, but there are abdominal symptoms also.
Generally a pinch under that shoulder. Just felt it when I stood up
I had read that. My abdomen feels 100%. This is only high up on my back towards left shoulder.
I would suggest you to have some anti -inflammatory like motrin or advil to see if it helps.If it helps it must be some musculo-skeletal injury.Have a break from sitting in front of computer all day.Have some cold compress over the region.
Go ahead with the appointment and get the necessary tests like X Ray done to clear the issue.
You can try these measure in the meanwhile.
I'll give it a shot. Appreciate the input. Can't get an appointment for a few weeks. Feeling the twinge when food and drink passes through and during some occassional belches was what made me want to ask about it.
There are some gastro symptoms here which could be related to esophagus problems.
You can add an antacid like prilosec or neksium for any possible reflux or inflammation.
Take frequent small feeds and cut down on fatty and spicy foods.
