Annoying pain in right shoulder blade when I swallow

For five months now, I have been having this annoying pain in my right shoulder blade when I swallow food or liquid and when I belch. It feels like it is in one spot every time and it doesn't hurt that bad, and it stops after I finish swallowing. I went to my GI doc and he upped my Prevacid to twice a day and gave me Reglan. He was puzzled why I would have this pain, too.

It hasn't gotten any worst or better, but it hasn't gone away either. Do any of you know what this could be. I will be making an appointment for an upper GI exam this week.

Re: Annoying pain in right shoulder blade when I swallow

I went to the GI today and he has me scheduled for three esophagus exams. Tomorrow is the barium. He is baffled because he says it's not the reflux. I have three buldging discs in my back on the right side and he seems to think it is a nerve or a blood vessel pressing on my esophagus. I am worried though because it has been going on for so long. Otherwise, I feel fine, energenic, and functioning. It is only when I eat or drink and belch do I feel this discomfort. Won't someone reply to me?

Re: Annoying pain in right shoulder blade when I swallow

I had the barium xray of my esophagus and it came back negative, but the discomfort is still there. I have two more esophagus tests to take. I realize that I have GERD, diveculitis (sp), and IBS and had my gallbladder removed four years ago, but this feels like gallbladder pain, but not so bad. I have a lot going on that brings on stress, but other than this discomfort, I am pretty healthy.
