Stabbing chest pain, radiating between shoulder blades, shortness of breath. High creatinine levels. Causes for pain?

sharp, stabbing chest pain that has been happening for about a week. Not constant. Can be sitting, standing and then all of a sudden it hits. 1 day ago started radiating between shoulder blades. The pain is starting to last longer. Got short of breath 1 night. Picking something up, bending over can make it worse. EKG normal. BP 138/92 at last MD visit. Creatinine urine levels increased from 153 to 338 in 4 months. Primary felt not cardiac related. Did an adjustment.

Thanks for posting your query.
Although your EKG is normal, still you should consult with internal medicine specialist/ cardiologist and should go for coronary angiography & 2 D Echo for better clarification of heart status.
You should also go for ultrasound imaging and renal function test for kidney status.
If you have acidic belching and gastric problems then you should also go for endoscopy.
If all investigations are normal then you should take muscle relaxants for relief of symptoms.
Aggravation of pain with bending and turning suggests involvement of muscles.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava
