Today while walking into the shops I got this most unbelieveably painful stabbing pain in my left shoulder blade. It hurts to breathe and is more painful when I rest it. Moving my arm around doe snot hurt at all. I did nothing to injure myself. The previous month I had a frozen right shoulder. Any idea as to what I have done? It hurts like the buggery to breathe.
I would call NHS direct for this and get seen by the out of hours.It doesn't sound muscular as you say it doesn't hurt to move it but the pain whilst breathing is a concern. Give them a call and get it checked.
Do phone NHS direct, or your local out of hours - i wouldn't leave this. Saying that, it may well be muscular, or even, dare i say it, indegestion - but these things are best checked out. Do you feel sick, sweaty and out of breath at all?
I was walking up the road when in started this afternoon. Hadnt eaten so not indigestion (never had indigestion so cant compare) Not radiating to my jaw, shouloders, back or chest so it not an MI. Wasnt dfoing anything strenuous apart from carrying walking up the road. It is more annoying at the moment. I rang NHS Direct and am waiting to hear back. I hope its nothing. My GP is an evil bitch and I dont want to see her.
sorry for the late reply. I had a sleep in and took a lot of painkillers. NHS did not help all that much. Ended up ringing my mum (shes a nurse) and figured that it is more time delayed injuries related to an accident I had in June adn also the fact that I have not been doing my physio exercies. It doesnt hurt that much to breathe now which is nice. Thaniks for all the help.
nah too fat for that I have cracked ribs before from coughing and the doctor said it was lucky that I wasnt skinny as I would have had a puncture or two. Feeling heaps better today. In more pain from the physio I think.
