I have a pain that goes from the right to the left of my back, under my shoulder blades. It started coming on slowly, but now it goes through between the shoulder blades and through to my chest. It feels like there's an open cut, round area being filled with acid or like some alien creature chomping away at my insides. I've been to the emergency room and all of my organs have been checked. I do have a hiatal hernia and acid reflux, and trouble swallowing. My doctor says I need to go to a pain clinic, but there's a wait to get in. Can anyone help me figure it out?
It sounds like you need to find another doctor. Your current doctor may have tried everything he knows to do, but there has to be a reason you are experiencing so much pain. You might try an internist. I'm not a doctor, but I can't help but wonder if the pain might be related to the hiatal hernia and other related problems you have.
You could go ahead and put your name on the waiting list for the pain clinic, but in the meantime, you need to find a doctor who will treat your pain and continue to search for the cause. Don't give up until you find a doctor who will help you!
While you're waiting see if any of our tips for managing chronic pain help at all. Good luck!
