Sharp Pain Under/ Behind Shoulder Blade

Sharp Pain Under/ Behind Shoulder Blade

HI guys,

ok so I have been having a bad day today with my fibro and recently I have been getting a really sharp pain down the length of my right shoulder blade from my neck going behind the shoulder blade itself. It is a sharp pain that does not allow me to move my arms or anything. Mom had to help me carry a not so heavy bag to my room because I could not pick it up.

Does anyone else get this as well? or any sharp pain in this case around their shoulder blades? I get very frustrated becauseā€¦ read more

I have also experienced this pain before I knew I had fibro and I went to see an acupuncturist and they were able to help. By the following day I was able to gain mobility of the arm and the pain subsided. Hope this helps :)

I get that same pain on my left side. When it becomes unbearable for long periods.....weeks to months...... I go in and get Botox injections in my lower skull area and get almost immediate relief.

I've been dealing with the same thing for a couple of months now. From my right shoulder ,my arm down to my fingers. It's painful for me to even pick up a glass of water.

I have this awful deep shoulder pain under the shoulder blade itself! Then i get pain down the front of my neck, down the under part of my arm. Before i got fibro diagnosis i thought i was having a heart attack! It was awful. The pain usually comes and goes in my left shoulder blade and under my left ribs but everytime i have a flare it seems to last longer and longer and im scared itll become permanent eventually. Also even though i know i have fibro i always get this terrible overwhelming thought that its something more serious and it scares me. Anyone else feel like this? Also ive noticed most people have right sided shoulder blade pain as opposed to the left like me. Is that rare or something?

I also have similar pain. I believe it was caused by repetitive motions when I was a cashier at a grocery store. My pain clinic doctor gives me injections of Toradol or cortisone every three months. I take strong narcotics also. I also use. Voltairen Gel. It really helps
