Question: right shoulder blade/breast pain

 dr88 - Sun Jul 31, 2005 3:47 pm

Im a 18 year old male, overweight. BP is 120/70 and a my resting pulse is 72. recently ive been getting pains when taking very deep breaths in my right upper chest. also, it affects my range of motion in my right arm (hurts in the shoulder blade when i move my arm back.)
any ideas what this could be? i just started some naproxin that i had from a previous sports injury. If the pain doesnt go away within a few days, i will be seeing a doctor.
thanks for your help
