Help needed..

Hi. This is my first time posting. I wanted to start a discussion regarding my issue that I’ve experienced for about 3 years on and off. I have soreness in my right shoulder blade, it feels like it is next to my spine. I used a tennis ball to see if it was a knot, but when I placed it there, it hurt. I feel it when I turn my neck to the side. If I was to describe the pain, I would say it’s lower than a 5. It kind of feels like if there was a huge crack, it would heal it.  I previously went to the dr and she did a shoulder X-ray, that showed nothing. Her diagnosis was a shoulder strain due to overuse. I am a hypochondriac, so of course I’ve gone through every single illness that could have something to do with shoulder pain. This time I also experienced pain in my clavicle, it was alittle painful to lift my arm. Has anyone experienced what I am going through? Any feedback would be appreciated.

    welcome to spine-health

    there are no medical professional on this site, so any answers you get will be others people's experience, not a diagnosis.

    you need to return to your doctor if you still have problems and get this problem investigated further.  if it is a shoulder strain, then you may need to consider physiotherapy to help you and to advise you on how to use it without causing a strain from overuse,

    i have added two links below to help new members with information on this very informative site.  there is lots of material to research that will help give you the power of knowledge and maybe some new ways of coping with your pain, until you can get more help with this.
