I sure do hope you find the cause of your pain and then some relief! Often times pain is difficult to the source since it can translate around the body. I remember gall bladder attacks that were on my back, between my shoulder blades. I thought that was mighty weird but it's very common.
One thing I would suggest considering is to ask for a heart check-up. I'm not saying this to scare you, just to share with you how often women are very different than men. When my mother was in her late 70's she had horrid pain between her shoulder blade. It was so bad at times that taking a breath was almost out of the question because of the pain. She went to her doctor (unfortunately is was Group Health...or Group Death as we call it around here) and he said it was a muscle issue. He had her on muscles relaxers and shipped her off to PT for a bit. It only was worse and worse. So he changed pills and suggested rest and whatever else he could think of. This went on for months and months. She even tried acupuncture on her own and had no relief.
In the mean time my father, who was on hospice care, continued to decline and passes away. She had one more doc appointment with someone new and he recognized it as congestive heart failure!! Just a few days after dads' memorial service mother had a massive heart attack and when the paramedics came they checked her over and asked me if she had plans for end of life care. I knew by the time they got there that she would likely not make it. The doctor at the hospital even told us that they couldn't even get a catheter threaded into the artery that was blocked on her heart. But, just as he told us the bad news his partner got the cath in and placed 2 stents. She was with us for another 4 years after that. This man literally would not let her die and refused to give up trying to save her after others had.
The reason for this long story is to let you, and others, remember that women feel heart problems different than men...often. You likely are having a muscle problem, but please don't discount having a good heart check-up just to be sure. We want you to be around for a very long time!
