Thank you for providing the brief history of you.
As you mentioned you have a stabbing pain
in the shoulder which radiates to the rib cage
and also your heart checkup was done which is all fine.
You need a thorough neuromuscular assessment which will help us if the pathology is in the Cervical region, Shoulder region, Rib cage or abdomen?
Also, with the orthopedic and Neurological special test we can come closer to the root cause. Also, pain in the shoulder which is stabbing is related to either a shoulder joint pathology or cervical spine
pathology. The pain in the rib cage for which chest examination is required. May be pathology of the lungs which is very uncommon to predict also, since pain cannot be because of it as well.
The pain in the lower part of the rib cage for which an ultrasound
scan of the abdomen will help assist further.
The pain in the shoulder and rib cage can be not connected as the nerve
supply ,blood supply and the muscle innervation are totally different.
So both pathologies are different. For stabbing pain in shoulder the pathology will be related to either the cervical spine or the shoulder.
And for pain in the rib cage, the pathology can be related to chest or abdomen.
both needs a different assessment and different approach to diagnosis.
I will recommend to undergo a Neuromuscular assessment by which we can differentiate both the pathologies and help you better.
For shoulder pain
, with proper rest, medication and physical therapy
things fall into place.
