My mom is currently feeling like shes weighted down on her left side upper back in between her shoulder blades Ive been searching the net for any symptoms with no results she said she feels like there's a bowling ball weighing her down please give me information
While your Mom’s feeling of being “weighted down, on the left side, between her shoulder blades” is a somewhat unusual symptom, it must not be ignored. The cause could be relatively benign, such as arthritis of the spine or back muscle strain, but that must not be assumed. This symptom could arise from other, more serious lung or chest disease and, if so, the cause should be identified and treated. While not an emergency, she should arrange to see her doctor without delay and, following physical examination, should have a Chest X-ray and perhaps further X-ray studies (for example of her spine) deemed appropriate by her doctor.
I hope that the cause of her “feeling” is not serious and that treatment will provide relief.
