I have been really suffering the past few days and am praying someone can help me! I had surgery to correct my scoliosis (curvature of the spine) about 10 years ago now. I have always felt great, but occasionally would have pain in my right shoulder blade. This would happen when I was sitting with no back support, bending over a lot, etc. It would feel like a burning pain, kind of with needles in it, almost like something was being "torn." I attributed it to over-exertion and once I would rest, especially overnight, i would be fine.
The problem is, I was throwing a football around with my husband on Sunday and about an hour later, I got this same shoulder blade pain again. I rested like usual, but it won't go away! It has been constant since and I only get some relief when I take advil every couple hours. I have tried heat, but that didn't seem to help, also tried stretching. I can't find a comfortable position to sleep and it won't let up. It's pretty much a constant pain with an occasional burning when I make certain movement.
I have a call into my doctor, but in the meantime, I was hoping I could find someone who had a similar experience because I'm terrified that something bad is going on. I'd also welcome any suggestions on how to make it feel better. I can barely concentrate and feel like I can't function.
