BURNING PAIN IN MY SHOULDER BLADE
2 Replies
andysgrace - August 20

I was diagnosed with FM ten years ago. Recently I've been having a burning pain
sensation on my shoulder blade..this is a new pain for me so I'm a little concerned.
Is this caused from FM ? It's extremely painful..i've never experienced this pain before.

I have had a bad burning pain in my shoulder blades (sometimes one, sometimes both) off and on for about fourteen years now, and have always put it down to fibromyalgia. There's not much you can do except for a few stretching exercies and some rest. With me, it just comes and goes.

Hi andysgrace - I'd suggest you check with a doctor, or even a massage therapist, to see if you have muscle knots around your shoulder blades. I had big knots in my muscles, and it was very painful. The treatment for me was a series of injections of lidocaine and a couple days later, deep massage. It worked!

If you do have muscle knots, and decide to take this approach, make sure you ask the doctor to use a very fine (small-bore) needle and give many small injections, numbing you up as he goes in deeper. Then you will need massage to break up the knots. My injections were done by an anesthesiologist/acupuncturist and they were not too uncomfortable. They completely cured my upper back pain. (Later, however, I asked my regular doctor for a lidocaine injection into a different muscle knot - he gave me one big shot with a big needle - it was awful! So find someone who knows what they're doing with this!)
