Hello
I am Doctor Thomas, a double board certified doctor in internal medicine and integrative medicine, with advanced training in several other fields. I am a clinician of over 20 years experience. I will give you an initial answer or ask you a question, but be sure to use reply to expert to communicate with me as needed.
It can be gallstones.
This can become very serious if not addressed.
Go to urgent care now, or the ER.
Get an exam and an ultrasound.
Clot to the lung is possible....needed EKG.
Heart is not likely, but need EKG.
Penetrating ulcer is a more remote possibility.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. When you are ready, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

Oh I have several lol. It started about a year ago with just
It started about a year ago with just low grade fever in the evening time each day with body aches. Then about 6 months ago I started getting this very severe aching pain behind and around my right upper shoulder blade that started progressing rapidly each day along with SWOLLEN lymph nodes. The pain and inflammation by my shoulder blade got worse and worse and within a month I had to quit my job mainly because of this but by this time I had severe fatigue and shortness of breathe which made simple tasks such as taking a shower seem like a workout. I seen my primary care physician and what I thought was a SWOLLEN lymph node on my collarbone turned out to be my actual collar BONE itself. It, my shoulder blade, and even my ribs mainly my left rib seemed inflamed. Normal chest xrays and cbc blood tests BESIDES the first cbc my liver enzymes were slightly elevated but the next cbc test I had done they were normal, with another normal chest xray. But the inflammation by my right shoulder as well as the pain never subsided but only got worse and eventually you could actually see the inflammation down the whole right side of my back INCLUDING up the right side to my shoulder making it hard to use to my right arm. My latest new symptoms have been my feet,ankles, and knees that had severe inflammation and pain on the top of my feet, my ankles, making it impossible to put on any skinny jeans or shoes BESIDES one pair I own. My bones are still inflamed, I still run fevers and fell achy and sick in the evenings but now they've begun to flare up at random times during the day. My bones that are inflamed (right collar BONE, left rib,) do not hurt or cause any pain what so ever. The most severe pain and the main debilitating symptom is the pain behind and around my right shoulder blade. My lymph nodes swell up then go back down then swell up again randomly. Also I forgot to mention the pain that's severe by my right shoulder is deep and I can feel it in the right side of my chest around, behind, and above my right breast. I also have a SWOLLEN muscle in the right side of my back that's been there the whole time that I also mistaken as a SWOLLEN lymph node the whole time. … read more
