Hi, I've been doing some research online and came across this group.
I read what you said about your Rhomboid giving you such terrible pain,
my suggestion- It could be your pec major/minor that is too tight which would cause your shoulder to come forward a bit- pulling on (over stretching) muscles of the thoracic region ( upper/mid back between sh. blades). Neuromuscular massage paired with one on one private pilates may be you answer!
I am an orhtopedic nurse practitioner. Sounds like you have a myofascial trigger point (MTP) in your rhomboid muscle. The best therapy includes a physical therapist experienced in treating MTPs. Ask this when you make your first appointment. Not all are!!!!! A stretching routine with a styrofoam roll, ice afterwards and a non-steroidal medication of your choice e.g. ibuprofen, naprxen sodium, etc. Hope this helps
