Why do my shoulder blades hurt& upper back
Hello from ja
What medical problems do you have
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
None. That I know
How long has this been going on?
What happened?
Any other problems?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
3 day s.no othef problems
Did you work out...anything change?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
No
OK
Pain here is usually muscular.
However, it can be a spinal disc problem.
Sometimes it can be referred pain from a blood vessel problem in the chest.
Sometimes it can be referred pain from a gallbladder, stomach or pancreas problem.
You should not let pain like this go on without a physical exam, and possibly an EKG, possibly a chest x ray...it depends on exam findings.
Since this has gone on for 3 days, i would be concerned, and I would see your doctor today or go to urgent care to be checked out.
OK. If you have further questions or details, use reply to expert.
Otherwise please choose a positive rating . But, still come back if you need to…think of something later, etc. Bonuses are appreciated.
