Burning behind left shoulder blade

I am having some burning pains behind my left shoulder blade almost everyday, sometimes the upper part of my left arm will have a burning sensation too. Does anyone have any idea what this could be coming from?? Yes. I do smoke about a pack a day but am trying to quit but its so hard. This burning has me worried. I take a great many vitamins a day , e, c, zinc, magneisum, green tea extract and flax seed oil capsuels. Does this sound like its coming from my lung or my heart?? I did have a heart attack last year from my cholestral being too high and am taking 25mg atenolol for that and blood pressure but I felt nothing like this before hand. There is so much cancer going around that these symptoms have me so upset. I cant see a doc because i still owe 60,000 from last year. Someone please reply.

Re: Burning behind left shoulder blade

I would encourage you to seek medical help. We are not doctors, just a support group, voicing what we have gone through, what 'may' help, what we have found to work etc. In most cases AFTER a dr's diagnosies. If this is a worry to you, I would get it checked. It could be such a vast variety of things from a pinched nerve to muscle strain, to pain diversion from another area. And since you have had a heart attack it would be even more grave that you get checked by a medical professional. I hope you will get back to us and keep in touch, as to what you find out. God bless Mattie
