Pain in back, shoulder. Hurts on twisting, bending, pain while deep breathing. Reason for pain?

Hi, I have pain in my mid/upper back on the left side under my shoulder that radiates around to the front under my rib. It hurts a great deal when I twist and side bend. I have had this pain for 7 weeks and have not had a reprieve. It is difficult to find a comfortable sleeping position. When I take a deep breath, I feel pain both in front and on the left side. Please help. Thanks, Alyson

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

It sounds like muscular pain but -
Pain more than a month needs physical examination.
See your doctor.
X-rays of the chest and spine may be needed / probably an EKG too...
Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drugs and Skeletal Muscle relaxants may help in the mean time

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
