pain between shoulder blades and shoulder

I have had pain between my shoulder blades and shoulder for about two weeks now. I have had two spinal adjustments, but nothing seems to help. I am not short of breath, dizzy or sick to my stomach. Occasionally the pain does reach through to my chest, but not all the time. I was just wondering if anyone had any experiences like this and if so what did you do? or what happend?

This may sound stupid but... could it be gas? Seems a long time for it to have settled there but? A lot of people dont realize you can get gas trapped there and it can be excruciating, like knives being twisted between your shoulder blades. Anyway, just a thought... good luck

Re: pain between shoulder blades and shoulder

Hi there , I don't know if this is helpful at all but I had that problem off and on over many years.. it used to puzzle me, the feeling as if there was something pressing thru from the spine and it would cause a strange feeling in my chest.. then go away.. I never had those symptoms you described either, but I had extreme back pain at times yet no one (GP) took it seriously,; then 2 1/2 years ago, after years of having Chiropractors/Osteopaths and Physio work done , I had an MRI scan showing a bulging disc, at level Thorasic T8/T9. It was squashing the spinal Cord. The operation revealed CALCIFICATION, which had been growing huge in that area!I think I may have damaged my spine years before or it was a "Shmorls Node",which you will see info about under the topics - Spinal Cord Disorders or Rare Disorders on this Message board site, or "Schummans Disease".( spelling may be wrong) I've covered a bit of my history in Spinal Cord Disorders under the same name - belle0050 if you want to read a little about what I've been through, Words cannot explain it all!.. I've had 2 ops, and am now due for a 3rd in July. What I'm saying is .. if you find it continues and no one takes you seriously .. demand some help!! don't let it go on forever like I did ..I trusted Dr's too much ! You know your body more than anyone else! this I now realize!! I hope this hasn't scared you , Law, as that's not the message meant here, I hope it may just give you a possible clue..? If not, I wish you luck for whatever happens .. All the Best .. from Belle - New Zealand .

A Friend!

Re: pain between shoulder blades and shoulder

Are you having spasums? did the person who adjucted you say what it is or might be? Have you talked to your doctor? Have you tried heating pad or hot soaks in the tub?

Pain is a real pain and I know how you must feel.

Take care ~Kim & Gary~
