How long are you having this pain? Any other symptoms like nausea, fever, upper abdomen pain? Any difference with movement? What kind of x-ray was it?

Thanks for the information.

There are a few possibilities that can cause this kind of pain in shoulder blade such as musculoskeletal/shoulder joint related, pinched nerve, pancrease or gall bladder problem, and must be investigated one by one. You will have to get MRI to look for musculoskeletal problem, blood test and ultrasound to rule out problem in pancrease and gall bladder. You have to find the cause to treat this pain, you can get back to your doctor to run these tests and get stronger pain meds for pain control.

For heartburn and minor discomfort, you can take OTC prilosec and it will help you with this kind of problem.

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.
