Sharp Left Shoulder Pain After Eating

For about the last week, anytime i get close to full, i get a sharp stabbing pain on the top of my left shoulder. The pain is actually centered right between the base of my neck and the top of my left shoulder, but radiates to the shoulder and to the base of the neck. It starts while I'm still eating and gets gradually worse for about half and hour, and then it slowly subsides over about an hour. When I haven't eaten recently, the area feels tight and stiff, but doesn't really hurt. Any thoughts on what could be causing this?

Re: Sharp Left Shoulder Pain After Eating

Could you have acid reflux/GERD? When I was diagnosed with GERD my presenting symptoms were not a burning throat/heartburn but extreme constant pain in my upper back, between my shoulder blades. I laughed at my doctor when he suggested it but after my first dose of Prevacid the pain was alleviated.

Good luck!
