Pain between shoulder blades

I have a pain in the upper part of my back between my shoulder blades and pain in my left arm.  I have had an echocardiagram and Thalium stress test plus x-rays they were normal.  At times by whole body aches.  I have a bunining in my stomach at times.  I was wondering what is causing this?


This discussion is related to What's wrong with me?.

This could be Gerd, the esophogus gets irritated and can stimulate the same nerve bundle that causes the pain during a heart attack. It is very difficult t tell the difference between the two. If you have had normal cardiac test results, you should consider seeing you family doctor and asking about Gerd.

Please remember, pain in your upper back between the shoulder blades is also a symptom of an MI so don't take it lightly. If it continues you should consider a trip to the ER to be safe.

Good luck,

Jon
