shoulder and shoulder blade pain ????

hi, i am a 30 year old male. I have been having pain in my left shoulder and shoulder blade for a year now and recently i have been having pain in my mid back aswell. The pain in my back feels like my spine is bruised. The pain in my shouklder feels like a dull ache and my shoulder blade feels like its a knotted up and sore. The shouler pain started first the then the shoulder blade pain and now my mid back. I have been doing physio its seems to help but not resolve the problem. My doc seems to think its a repetitive strain injury. xrays were normal and i am waiting on an mri. If any1 has had a similar problem i would like to hear about it, maybe it would give me some ideas on wt to ask my doc because he seems pretty stuck on the idea that its just an RSI injury.........i forgot to mention that i get a dull ache under my left upper rib area.

Re: shoulder and shoulder blade pain ????

i am still waiting to get an mri.....the waiting lists for an mri are pretty long in my town. The docs keep leaning towards a repetitive strain injury but it feels like something more to me , its hard to explain but i just know something is messed up in my shoulder or shoulder blade, if not both. It seems to heal up a bit but it never stays well for long and i dont know wt i keep doing to aggravate it or cause it to flare up. I just wake up some mornings and there it is , that sharp pain in my shoulder and dull ache in my shouder blade

Re: shoulder and shoulder blade pain ????

nfld,did you have surgery? I had the same problem, pain in upper back, shoulder blade area. I just had surgery 1/31/12. The muscle spasms had actually pulled my ribs out of place. It has been very painful.. I had bone spurs removed, he shaved down some other bone, two torn tendons, torn muscle, torn labrum. Six weeks after surgery and I am still in pain, but the PT is pretty intense so that makes it hurt alot.
Let me know what you had done and if it has helped you.
Good luck..

So what repetative movement did you keep doing to get a repetative strain injury? What has your physio treatment consisted of and what does your physio think the diagnosis is.
