I am 50 yrs old and have dealt with all types of pain in my life, however in January ( 3 months ago ) I was awakened by the most AWEFUL cramping, stabbing, tightness in my right shoulder blade area into chest/heart/lung area..I am pretty tough, but this had me screaming, almost zombie like in my bed. I have tried heat, ice, pain pills, baths, massage, creams!This happens EVERY night/or day when I am "sleeping". I went to the E.R. and had c scan with dye, chest xrays, blood work, allll came back normal?? I was In shock, they found nothing! I am taking pain pills due to an elbow/ortho prob and even the pain pills do NOT budge this pain. I have googled/asked Pharms/described to Family doc, NEVER any answers of what this could be SINCE my xrays n scans came back with nothing that could be the prob! I am at the point where I do NOT want to sleep because I KNOWW the pain coming, and without a doubt, it happens EVERY time. This has been THREE MONTHS now and I can not function. This just happened to take place while I was out of work for my seasonal job, but NOW it is time for me to return to work! I am TERRIFIED I am not going to be able to function normal without proper sleep! Can ANYONE PLEASE lead me in the right direction or give me ANY idea of what might be causing this???? or ANYTHING that might help ease this pain as I sleep?? My ortho doc mentioned a muscle that lays on spine?? ( that's about as far as he went with that info ). PLEASE, PLEASE help me
