Hi everyone. I woke up this morning with a really uncomfortable pain under my left shoulder blade and my neck felt as if someone had slammed my head down into my shoulders with a sledge hammer. I feel like I need to stretch my whole body, and it makes it feel better temporarily, but it hurts like heck when I try at first. My left arm doesn't want to move upward past the mid section of my body, I feel myself leaning to the left as if everything is being pulled that way and when I breath too deep or cough it aggravates the pain under my shoulder blade.
I have no idea what this may be and it concerns me as I am a smoker.

Anyone have any ideas? I am not fond of hospitals or doctors offices, so I have a tendancy to avoid them at all cost.
