Pain between back shoulder blades, chest discomfort

Last night I was lying in bed reading and I had these spasms, pains in between my back shoulder blades. I sat straight up and then they pretty much went away. Then today, I've been having just a general achiness in the same area along with the front part of my chest. Especially when I put a bra on, it makes it worse.

Does anyone else have this? I have taken Advil, but doesn't do very much. I also read that women with heart attacks get the pain between their back shoulder blades. Went to the doctor this afternoon, and he pretty much told me I was not dying of a heart attack...did an ECG, normal, blood pressure and pulse normal. He said it could be a flu, muscle or skeletal achiness and pain.

I'm still worried because its just an uncomfortable feeling...I've had so many different things with this peri, you just never know.

Hi Dani!

I had some terrible neck pain, just above my shoulder blades; nausea, tightness in my chest, a bit of trouble breathing, swelling in my hands and feet ....

this was over the past week.
I had been drinking a new drink (well, it's new to ME) and it contains white tea and green tea... might I add, I've been drinking A LOT of it.

Now Aunt Flo has visited me... I don't have any of those symptoms--except for the swelling and bloating.

Re: Pain between back shoulder blades, chest discomfort

Reflex can do this also. Acid Reflex. Can cause pain and discomfort in both chest and between shoulder blades.
