shoulder pain

I had the same type pains in my shoulder blade and under my left breast. I was at work when it started and I could not even use my left arm without pain shooting through me. I was so scared I starting crying. I went to the emergency clinic where tey did chest xrays and a EKG everything was fine. They told me it could be muscular or pluritic(sp) pain never mentioned Reflux. It started about 445p and tapered off until about 12a. This makes more sense. Thanks! Jennifer

Hi augigi,
There are so many causes for pain in the sites you have mentioned.
But since you are not able to use your arm without pain, it is more likely to be  muscle pain only.
A pain killer may be helpful.
