Sharp Pain In Right Side Of Upper Back Next To Shoulder Blade.

I have been experiencing sharp pain in the right side of my upper back next to my shoulder blade. Do you know what could be causing this?

Answer

Hi there, Dora -

Did you ever find out what this problem was with your upper back and shoulder? It sounds like it might be muscle strain or a pinched nerve, perhaps due to overuse. It could also have been due to a problem with a disc in your thoracic spine. I hope, in any case, that it's long ago resolved and that you're feeling well.
