I have been suffering with pain in my neck/right shoulder blade and thoracic muscle for the past 4 months. It started with my neck and i was unable to touch my chin to my chest and tilt my head back. After a while my right shoulder blade started to hurt - its hard to describe where it hurts but its the muscle between the blade and spine -its sore to touch, can feel like a throbbing/stabbing pain and at night especially in bed its like a dull ache - i even wake up stiff in the morning (and during the night) with stiffness on my right shoulder and down my upper arm (probably because i lie on that side!). Some of these symptoms have developed over the past few 4 weeks. X ray and bloods have come back normal although on blood test did show raised inflammatory markers which i was told just proved that i had pain. I was give tramadol (uk name) and have now added in an anti inflammatory. Physio sessions have been of little help. It kind of feels that i am being dismissed because all tests i have had so far have come back normal. I am only 28 (female). I do working with computers but and ergonimcally aware of how to sit etc. Neck pain has now subsided but i feel tired and seem to have less energy than i should. Surly its not normal to eperience pain like this for 4 months - any suggestions would be grateful
