Veins showing on shoulder blades? Wierd...

About a month ago, I noticed my shoulder blades began to hurt. It was only for a few days, and it wasn't that painful. They just felt sore, although I couldn't think of anything I had done differently. Anyway, just the other night, I noticed some strange marks on them. I don't know if they are veins, but it really just looks like someone took a red ballpoint pen, and made random short little marks on my shoulder blades. I know this is wierd, but I am stumped. The only thing I have figured out is that the marks were probably associated with the pain I was feeling earlier. Any ideas?

Re: Veins showing on shoulder blades? Wierd...

Were you rubbing your shoulder yourself (or massage by someone else)or maybe scratching that area? Could be broken vessels.

Has the pain increased? Are the marks following a specific line (in a line or pattern)? Could be shingles.

In any event..if it doesn't improve, best to see a doctor.

Hope it's nothing serious.
It's all a matter of perspective!
