Sudden onset of left shoulder, back, neck pain upon waking now constant two days. Unable to get comfortable. Breathing hurts. Using my right arm hurts. Bracing helps. Heat / ice no improvement.
Two years ago I tripped and fell hard on my knees and front and had this kind of sharp pain from shoulder blade to chest upon certain movements. It faded to nothing until I woke with more pain in these areas. It feels like a stiff neck, shooting pain and ache through L breast, down L side, behind collar bone, up neck.
