About 2 days ago, i started getting this acute pain behind my right shoulder blade. Now i have had a recent lower back injury, so I assumed this was related. Yesterday, the pain had subsided, but still occurred if I was rotating my right arm in a counterclockwise fashion. I still thought it was just related to my prior injury. But then, i was eating lunch and every time I swallowed, i started getting acute pain on the left side of my right pectoral muscle (just a little right of my sternum). A friend said that it might be a rib out of place. I'm concerned it may be something more. Could it be something else? If it is a rib out of place, what is the best method of treatment?
