I had a dull pain between my left shoulder blade and spine for about 3 weeks. It finally went away on it's own. Then 2 weeks later it returned. It is still a dull pain in the same spot. It is really irritating me. Sometimes it radiates down my left arm and hand. I do not have any pain on inspiration or expiration. Any notion to what it might could be?
Thank You for your time,

I wish I could think of the name of what you are talking about. I don't think it has anything to do with the heart. With the symptoms that you are discribing try pressing down on your shoulder with the tips of 2 of your fingers , in different places, until you have covered the entire area. If it is what one of our patients had, it will send a radiating pain down your arm. If i'm not mistaken, it has some thing to do with a specific nerve. Go to the doctor and tell them your symptoms...

Very common symptom of a spinal facet lock. Just seek help from a manual therapeutist.
