Re: Pain in upper back/shoulder blade area.
Chad, I went through the same thing for the past 18 months. After x-rays, pain killers, muscle relaxants, and physical therapy, I finally got an MRI done, and now know that I have two herniated and three bulging discs. I am going to see an orthopedic surgeon and a pain specialist in the next two weeks. It was a relief to know that I wasn't just complaining all the time about nothing, but now I am facing the prospect of surgery.
I wish you luck in finding the source of your pain, and hope you to be pain free soon.
