Pain on right side of windpipe and lower right shoulder blade
For about the last 2 weeks I have had pain on the right side of my windpipe, right jaw, and in my lower right lower shoulder blade. At times it feels like my chest is tight, and I have shortness of breath.
Any ideas on what this could be?
Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possibilities that may need to be considered include respiratory tract infections, inflammations, neuro-muscular issues etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a primary care physician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. If any of the symptoms are severe you may consider a visit to the ER.
Hope this is helpful.
