What Does Pain Under The Right Scapula Indicate?

default
Posted on Fri, 10 Nov 2017
Question: I have pain daily under my right scapula. It hurts the most at the end of the day. If I take a deep breath It feels worse. It has been on-going for months. My MD wants me to see a shoulder specialist. I think I need a Xray first to see what is going one. No temp or redness. Just had lab work and everything was normal.

I read your question completely and have understood it well enough.
Please note..

1. Yes, this could be related to bony problems and hence x ray is recommended..

I just want to find out the cause..

3. And, sometimes muscular catch called as sprain can cause such problems..

We can see after x ray is done. Meanwhile, please continue taking analgesics.
