I'm Cat and new on HW. I've thought about
this all afternoon and well... I had terrible problems in that area of my back during my pregnancies to which no one addressed. As I got past the child bearing desire in my life, I kept having problems off and on. Then all heck broke loose, and so many things happened that it all meshed together. My pm dr had me go see an "in house" chiropractor who first of all, refused to do any kind of "adjustments" due to my main back problem. When my shoulder became really bad (frozen shoulder), the chiropractic Dr. was the one who listened, was a wonderful, and knowledgeable man. I really appreciate him and wish he was an MD! At any rate, he said the pain in my back between my shoulderblades came from the muscles pulling in to protect the shoulder and the syrinx which is my main diagnosis. I had no clue I had syringomyelia until I ruptered 4 discs and they did an MRI. So, there are many reasons your back would be hurting there. I feel for you...literally!! I agree with the other responses, make someone hear you! I know for me, if I go in with several ailments, I'm ignored. If I go in with one ailment, the dr tends to listen closer. Good luck.
