Hi,
This may be present since birth.There is some extra bone from margin of your scapula which is called exostosis.Now there is pain as some nerve might have touching that exostosis .
You do not worry,there is nothing serious you seek advise of orthopedic surgeon.

I am a 30 year old male. Height is approximately 174cms and weight is 49Kgs. My weight stays in the range of 47 -49 always. I am having chest pain for more than 2 months now and i get them every day, a good amount of times. It mostly comes and goes. It initially started in one location that is in the the center of the upper chest but more towards the right. Later I started getting pains at - lower center more towards left, left lower part and right lower part of chest. These pains are random and any one or more of these locations pain together. But there is mostly discomfort in the center of the upper chest towards the right. Sometimes the pains last a few mins and sometimes an hour or two. The pain is moderate and bearable. Also sometimes the pain is such that I can t take deep breaths as it worsens. Also there is this continuous tightness at the upper center part of the chest, which I feel if I try to take a deep breath. I have got my Xray(PA view) done. with the following results both lung fields are clear the cardiac shadow appears within normal limits. trachea and major bronchi appears normal. both costophrenic angles are well maintained. bony thorax is unremarkable. Also i got a blood report done Haemogram which was clear - only lymphocytes is 44.2 which is out of the 20-40 range on the report. Also E.S.R is 3 mm/hr I do not have a cold or cough . I do get stomach problems and gas easily. My appetite is normal and I normally eat many small meals throughout the day.

I have pain above my left breast, radiating into my armpit, sometimes my neck and down my arm. I also have pain in the back directly behind the pain in my chest.. Years ago, a doctor told me it was a muscle spasm. It has returned and comes on especially late in the evening.

I have been having some type of attacks that we stiff haven't got to the bottom of, I have been diagnosed with ulcer because the zantac helped me lol, then a couple of days later I was taken to the er with the same type of pain which I was diagnosed with biliary colic even though the ultrasound and xray didn't show anything, Then I was diagnosed the third at the er with having a panic attack and that I know wasn't it because I have had panic attacks since I've been around 14 yrs. old. Then I was diagnosed by my family dr. for constipation. lol. These attacks sometimes can be brutal. The pain starts in my back between my shoulder blades, and sometimes it only hurts on the left side and sometimes radiates to right to left but the pain is horrific and painful. These attacks usually cause me to sweat, I feel like I'm having a heart attack because of the pain in my chest, it causes me to burp a lot trying to help stop the pain, I shake because I think its where I'm hurting so bad, and sometimes get the chills, they usually only last about an hour the longest one I had lasted 3 hours. I recently just had another mild attack which wasn't real bad, but every since then I have like stomach acid that feels like it continually flows, I am on Prilosec 20 mg of the morning and zantac 150 mg. at night and have been since this started about 3 months ago. If the dr. presses on the right side of my stomach it hurts, it's like a burning type of tenderness pain that hurts really bad. They have done a hida scan and in the first hour they gave me radio active stuff for my gall bladder to appear but within that hour it did not show, so I had to wait another 30 minutes and finally it showed. Then the second part of the hida scan they gave me ensure to drink to watch how it functions, My family dr. said it was normal. I'm at my whitts end. I don't know what's wrong with me. My belly stays bloated out most of the time, I'm ashamed of when the pain hits because I don't want my kids to see me like this. I'm worried it's my colon since my dad had colon cancer and I have had blood in my stool real heavy for 3 days, went to my family doctor and they took a sample and tested it and said that was normal and since it was bright red it's really nothing to worry about. I just want to find out whats wrong with me. These drs. I think are starting think I'm some type of hypercondriac lol.. any advise would be helpful. Also sometimes that can set these attacks off is like eating something spicy, The other day I drank orange juice and ate a barbeque tv dinner and then had that attack, sometimes if me and my husband get into an argument sometimes that sets it off, or if I have a bowel movement it sometimes sets it off and the last round of antibiotics caused me to hurt. So I don't know what to do.
