Hi! I started having this back pain between my shoulder blades yesterday morning hurts when I breathe..my chest was hurting to so I went to the er they did a bunch of tests and said everything came back normal. Told me to take motrin for the pain and follow up with my dr. Within the next 2days... My question is..dose anyone of you suffer from this back pain? It's 6 am the next day and again I have this pain!!!!.. Thanks for any help. Jannyjan
Well, definitely follow up with your doctor as advised! Back pain could have several sources but gallbladder pain can definitely be referred to the upper back. I had pain in the middle of my chest, between my shoulder blades and in a tight band around my ribcage - I never once had the typical right-sided pain. If they didn't do a gallbladder ultrasound in the ER, ask your doctor about ordering one. Good luck and let us know how everything goes.
