I have back pain between my left shoulder blade and

I have back pain between my left shoulder blade and the center of my back. It doesn't take my breathe, I have no chest pain. I'm not nauseas or sweating. It almost feels as though there is a knot in my back similar to a charley horse in your leg. It goes away for long periods of time, seems to bother me more at work when I'm sitting at my desk. Any ideas as to what it could be?

Hi I am a female midwifery student 20 years old. Over the last week I have had a really bad pain on my back. The pain originates on my left hand side between my shoulder blade and spine and spreads round my ribs leaving me feeling breathless. The only way I can describe it is like I have been winded - it feels like i have been kicked by a horse. I haven t done anything that may have caused it (that I am aware of). It was a gradual onset and does not appear to be getting better. I have taken paracetamol and Ibuprofen for it and have rubbed some muscular anti inflammatory cream into it but doesn t seem to work. I cannot get into a comfy position whilst sitting or standing and the best position i can be in is lying on my right hand side. Any suggestions as to what it is or what i can do or take to numb the pain would be great.

I fell front first onto a vinyl floor and hurt my knees and arm. A few days later I worked a 15 hour shift where I was on my feet the whole time and when I left I had to lift my left leg to get into the car. I was in a lot of pain in my left lower back and from there down my leg to my feet. I could not lay on my left side and the pain in my left lower back was constant. My Dr sent me for xray that showed nothing and then he sent me for a ultrasound steroid into the area between hip and femur. I still experienced the symptoms and the right lower back was still paining. That was about 6 weeks ago and since then it has improved. 4 days ago I reached down to do something and hurt my right side upper back and had pain so severe it felt like I had a broken rib. When I breathed the pain was severe felt like pain of pleurisy I had many years ago. Every time I moved, my back spasmed and I was in severe pain. I could not lay down. The dr at emergency sent me for xray and nothing to explain was the result. I still have the pain and whne I cough it grabs me. Right side below shoulder blade.

pain seems to originate from center of my back, between shoulder blades. when i breathe a deep, sharp pain is felt. the pain seems to be inside, not just surface muscles. i think of a belt wrapped around my my upper back that hurts wherever it would expand, the front and back all at once.
