    For 6 months now, I have had pain in my upper back between the shoulder blades and in my chest ( usually left side ) but sometimes right. The pain travels around sometimes under my arm sometimes in elbow or hand. I thought it was heart related , stayed in hospital 3 days getting worked over for heart issues. My pc says muscle pain but nothing is working. Now i am starting to have tingling in my upper back and still the pain, sometimes i am stll convinced i am about to have a heart attack. I believe somehow this is all stemming from my vertebrate somehow. how should i proceed from this point?

    Any advice greatly appreciated I am tired of hurting and thinking im going to have a heart attack

    thanks

    i forgot to mention that the pain is worst in my left shoulderblade area, and that it feels like work to hold my head up

    thanks

    Your history leads me to think about cervical disc hernations causing these symptoms. The most common cause of “pain between the shoulder blades” is a cervical disc hernation. Pain that travels into the arm would support this diagnosis. You need a good history, physical examination and an MRI of the cervical spine for starters.

    Pain in back, arms and chest may occur because of wrong sleeping postures as well. You need to take care of the sleeping postures as well. Try to improve them with proper medication under qualified doctor. Good luck and get well soon.
