What Causes Pain In Shoulder Blade During Menopause?

My right shoulder blade has been hurting for a week, as if I slept wrong. It feels better now and I m able to move my arm freely without pain. But my stomach is feeling and looking bloated. I ve been taking cold tablets because I also have cold syptoms, of stuffy nose and chest. I m also 53 and am going through menopause. Don t know if that is part of it.

Hi,

The shoulder blade pain is less likely to connected with the menopause or the cold medications and more likely to be as a result of your neck posture while sleeping and particularly when awake. It's advisable to minimize mobile phone use and to use a normal chair (avoiding recliners) for a period of 3 weeks and if the symptom is still persisting, please consult an orthopedic surgeon.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. John Chacko, Orthopedic Surgeon
