Question: Right Shoulder Blade Pain

 rockybalboa - Sun Dec 04, 2005 8:35 pm

I have been experiencing pain in my right shoulder blade for about 4 weeks. It feels like its numb, burning, tingling, and pain. I went to the doctor last week, he said i had a rib out of place, and cracked my back ect. and said the pain might return in a couple weeks, but when i left the doctors office the pain came right back. Its really bothering me. I think it might be a pinched nerve or something. Please help.
