pain between spine and shoulderblade on right

Postby maria26 » Fri Mar 17, 2017 11:23 am

Have recently been dx with fibro and need advice. My Drs have not been much help. Does anyone experience pain as above, I have had this pain in this area since Jan 1st. Saw my Dr said probable scapular burstitis and it will just go, well it has not. Had cts, ultrasounds abdo pelvis etc so it is NOT my gallbladder. Last US was Tuesday. It does feel muscular but also burns feels tender and certain movements make it worse. My rheumy says its all part of fibro. Is this true. I feel the people who have this are the best persons to answer.
Also does anyone find their fibro causes a shortness of breath sensation as if the air is sticking in solar plexus. I realise anxiety also causes this and with all my other symptoms I certainly have that.
Any advice for a nervous newbie

Hi, I've been diagnosed now for coming up to 2 years. I have exactly the same problem. I was also diagnosed with PMR as well as Fibro at the time, but the shoulder pain and breathlessness I get most of the time and my rheum consultant did say I could have a steroid inj if I wanted, but I am refraining! Even walking is a problem now, with the breathlessness and it's all about pacing yourself and extra painkillers. Even on good days my pain is around 2/3 on the scale. X

Costochondritis. And it is blooming painful! Usually lasts for 2 weeks with me. I find that heat eases it greatly.
If you are in any doubt, visit your GP.

Much Love

Thank you everyone for replying. I googled costo but it says pain in front as it is the area where ribs join sternum. I have no pain there mine is all upper right back between spine shoulderblade. So can still be costo?
