| | Pain in shoulder blades when taking in a deep breath
I have been having shoulder blade pain for about a week now. It has been mostly in the left, but tonihgt it is in the left. It is killing me. It happens if I move a little too much, and definitely if I take in a deep breath. I don't know what it is, but it is killing me. Ibuprofen has not helped at all. I can't sleep. I cannot find a comfortable position. What could it be? I just need relief, and fast!! What can I take to help? It isn't a muscle pain, so creams won't do any good. The tears keep coming to my eyes. Please help!! I have had similar problems with pain in my chest a while back when breathing in. Have had a pulmonary embolism in the past, but I don't remember the symptoms.
