Ask Your Own Medical Question

Dear *****ient, for the symptoms that you describe impresisone tendinitis of the pectoralis minor, as well as other muscles and nerves that graze in those areas generating an irritation of the nerves and tendons.
This is located in the area that you describe, and an inflammatory process of the tendon (tendinitis) must be ruled out.
Because of his activity at work, where in some moments he may need to make great efforts, he contributes to generate a chronic inflammation that never improves.
It is necessary to perform an ultrasound of the region to confirm this diagnosis.
Tendinitis hurts when the tendon is at rest or a major effort is made of the muscle such as lifting objects.
It is likely that during the night you sleep on that side, and also in the last night the muscle relaxes and it is when you get up and mobilize the tendon that this cold generates pain.
It does not represent a disease for which to be alarmed but it must be discarded.
The treatment consists of muscle relaxants, analgesics, and in case of not improving infiltrations, but you must educate to stretch during the day.

Ask Your Own Medical Question

I suggest the following medical treatment with analgesic such as Diclofenac 50 mg(1) one tablet every 8 hours for 5 days in addition to a muscle relaxant such as Tizanidine 2 mg (1) one tablet at night for 10 days

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.

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
