Pain in upper back/shoulder blade area.

I've been having a burning,nagging type pain in my upper back,around my shoulder blades.When it starts hurting,it pretty much hurts continuiosly.Also,it sometimes hurts a little more when I take a deep breath.I've been having this for about 3 years,off & on now.I've had a million chest X-rays,& they say they come back negative.Probally tried every NSAID they make,but I still hurt.I don't know why they can't find out whats wrong with me?Anyone have any advice?I don't know what to do anymore(I've been to 5 different doctors for this with no luck)

Re: Pain in upper back/shoulder blade area.

Chad, I went through the same thing for the past 18 months. After x-rays, pain killers, muscle relaxants, and physical therapy, I finally got an MRI done, and now know that I have two herniated and three bulging discs. I am going to see an orthopedic surgeon and a pain specialist in the next two weeks. It was a relief to know that I wasn't just complaining all the time about nothing, but now I am facing the prospect of surgery.

I wish you luck in finding the source of your pain, and hope you to be pain free soon.
