Hi,

I get this and it's fibro. I get it at the front and back of my shoulder blades. Quite often fell that someone has kicked me in the shoulder with a steel toe cap boot. Can last for mins, hours, days. I also get pins and needles in my neck and bottom of my head. Hope you pain goes soon. Sending gentle hugs x

I've had problems like you're describing and it feels like someone punched me in the back with all their strength. My TENS and self heating patches are on overtime when it happens. :roll:
Still, might be good to ask your doctor. Even if it's Fibro, maybe he has any more advice that can bring relief.

Wrt ad's, if you feel they're not helping you enough, I'd mention it to doctor. Might be that you need a different one or maybe your dosage needs adjusting. I hope he'll help you sort this out quick so you can feel better.

I often put the pain over my right shoulder blade down to being right handed and therefore it gets used more. :dunno: :dunno: :teddy-bear:

Painprincess....when you see your Dr let him know exactly how you are feeling with the pain and emotionally.

There is no wonder you are more depressed lately. Think about all you have been dealing with in the last couple of months. When you are physically stressed then you will naturally get depressed. Depression doesn't always show itself mentally it can show itself physically.....Confused yet, LOL!

Painprinces.....there are times when you can look great to everyone but the minute you hit the Dr's office it is like a curtain drops and the tears flow. You may need a medication change, ask your Dr his opinion.

Maybe a trip in for a visit with the Dr is in order, especially if this numbing in your arm is something new.

Painprincess, hope you feel better soon. Lorraine x

It could be your fibromyalgia with the shoulder, but get it checked out regardless. I have FM so know what that feels like, but the pain in my shoulders, especially in my left, is absolutely excruciating, causing more specific pain to the front and back of shoulder area, down arm, and up and around neck area. My rheumatologist consultant had some x-rays done (but only because I wasn't happy with him and had a go at him) and two weeks later, my GP accessed the results from her PC, and referred me to orthopaedic who did state that it might be the FM, but ordered an MRI Scan on my left shoulder anyway; and it picked up that the end bone of the shoulder, instead of being vaguely curved, the consultant I later saw said, holding his hand over the model to demonstrate, then put his hand into a fist, to show me how my bone was at the end of it due to the thickness it had grown to. He called this an Impingement and I had an injection, and if it doesn't help, I may need an operation.
I knew that it was more than just FM and just glad that I got believed as often with FM people tend to get "written off," or just part of the FM in general. As far as I'm concerned, always listen to your body and your gut feeling. Go for it and if it is just FM, at least then you'll know for definite one way or another.
