chronic muscle pain for 6 months (trap/scapula knots)


i've had chronic muscle pain on the right side of my back for 6 months. it appears that my trap (and rhomboid) are in constant tension and always knotted up. i've tried all the drugs doctors have given me, dry needling, chiro, acupuncture, yoga, etc.

the pain only exists when i try to roll my shoulders back and down or barely stick my chest out.

when you feel the problem muscles, they are a mess; ropey, tense, inflamed, etc.

no matter how much i try to roll the muscles out, the pain comes back within minutes.

does anyone have an idea what could be going on?
