hello,
Just wondering if anyone has any ideas. Got a real tightness and crunchness and burning pain on right side of back under my shoulderblade. When it is massaged it sooo tight. There dosen't appear to be any fluid theree but the right side is where my le is. All down my rightside gets all twisted and tight, tols by last le nurse it was muscular but she did detect fluid there in the past. I do a pretty physical job and I am righthanded but nothing seems to relax in the muscles ina naround my shouldreblade. I had mld on it on fri and it worked but only temporarily. It gets very uncomfortable almost as if something is caught and twisted, Any ideas? I have tried cracking it myself but it causes pain and irriatation in the skin more burning etc.

Hi Butterfly

I could be lymph . I have same problem (im left handed) on my left side

I also wonder if i favour that side , or the lymph im my limbs and the way

i walk or move because of it puts a strain on it . Sounds crazy but i do

have problems with the lft side and i really put it down to the way

i walk because of the lymph. my whole body seems to be out of line

when i sit at my pc i sit trying to keep feet moving and up of the floor under the desk i seem to twist my self to stretch my legs so i slump the hips and dont sit up right from the groin and cause tightning there

just a thought. If you are concerned hun i would see your doctor

Hugssssssssssssss

Hi,
I'm a little late since I'm new here. Ha.

I don't have LE, however I do have a similar pain issue under my right shoulder blade/back. After several visits to many different types of doctors I finally had two that agreed on a diagnosis, Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. It is forever painful and I have a massage twice per week, have had nerve blocks, steriod injections and now take an increased dose of pain meds because of it. Some doctors suggest removing a rib to relieve the pain ... however, I have had enough surgery in my life, so I choose to stick with what I do now. In the past physical therapy helped, as did swimming, but after a while the darned thing just won't relax.

Please know I am not a doctor, nor am I diagnosing you - just letting you know what I have.

The other symptoms include pain in chest, first and second rib, numbness and tingling in my arm and hand from time to time.

Hi Butterfly

I have been thinking about this shoulder problem

my left arm has the lymph and i do routine stretching with the arm

This week i tried doing my massage of the nodes before the excercise

also included simple rotating of my shoulders then lifting arms to shoulder height and moving the arms at the same time acoss my chest stretching the back Also doing a simple head and neck rotation


It seems a little imporved and when i feel that ach increasing i do the stretching

It might just be old age with me hun but i do think it is helping

mine is just under the shoulder blade and up thru the shoulder to the muscle along the top

huggggggggggggg
