hey1 EVERYONE, I HAVE HAD A SHARP BACK SHOULDER PAINS IN MY LEFT SHOULDER NEARLY A YEAR NOW, AND AT FIRST I THOUGHT IT WAS PNEUMONIA,BUT AFTER HAVING GONE TO THE DOCTORS FOR MORE THAN A YEAR NOW , THE PAIN IS STILL THERE, WORSE OFF , I DO FEEL IT CONSTANTLY PRICKING INSIDE MY BACK NEAR THE SPIN ARE BUT NOT INSIDE MY SPINAL CODE, THE THING DOES ACT LIKE A SHIFTER,IF THE PAIN IS NOT CONFINED IN MY LEFT SHOULDER THEN IT WILL BE FELT IN MY LEFT ARM ,
IT HAS COSTED ME AN ARM AND A LEG, OF MEDICALLY BILL, EACH TIME I ASK THE DOC WHATS WRONG WITH ME, THEY WOULD SAY THEY DON'T KNOW CAUSE ALL MY X RAYS ARE CLEARLY ,
I HAVE TAKE ANTI BIO TICS , I CANT EVEN COUNT ANT MORE, SOMETIME I DO FEEL LIKE I CANNOT BREATH AND I RUN OUT OF AIR ESPECIALLY AT NIGHT WHEN I AM MORE RELAXED , THEN OTHER TIME I WOULD FEEL LIKE A JERK OF A SHARP PAIN IN MY CHEST, OF LATE IT HAS BECOME,E WORSE , I USED TO FEEL IT LIKE ONCE IN A MONTH NOW I CANNOT EVEN REMEMBER THE TIME I HAD A DECENT SLEEP .

WORSE OFF LIVING IN Lusaka ,Zambia HASN'T HELPED BECAUSE THE MEDICAL FACILITIES HERE ARE OF POOR STANDARDS ,
SO AFTER HAVING SEEN 3 DOCTORS AND A CHINESE DOC TOO, NONE OF THEM COULD TELL ME ANY THING OR GIVE ME A DIAGNOSIS
, I AM 23 YEARS OLD MALE, AND THIS IS SO AFFECTING MY LIFE , THE ONLY ,MEDS I WAS GIVEN WERE BRUFEN, AND CIBBROBID ,HOPE SOME CAN GIVE SOME ANSWERS I AM LOOKING FOR, MY SKIN IS NOW BEEN IRRITATED AS I HAVE TO USE " DEEP HEAT , AN ANTI INFLAMMATION CREAM " TO HELP EASY THE PAIN BUT IT HAS LITTLE EFFECT AS WELL, PLS DOES ANYONE HAVE A CLUE WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH ME , my ECG RESULTS WERE OK sometimes i also feel like i have gas and like some is blocking my esophagus

I have to say that to me, and I'm no Dr., it sounds more structural; like a pinched nerve, a herniated disc, something like that. Being that you're in a 3rd world country you may not have access to a chiropractor, if you do, that is what I would try.
I have so many problems with that kind of thing and normally, especially when it feels like I'm having problems breathing too, it's because I've popped a rib..from there everything goes into a spasm.

I wish you luck my friend!

i have both back and left shoulder burning pain which they think is caused by reflux getting into my lung and my nerves... plus the ppi causes pain so for me until ig et the surgery everything is up in the air...

Chalwe,

A chiropractor is a dr that manipulates the spine and muscles.

Look in the phone book and you should be able to find one.

I would definately try one.  If after a few trips it is not helping then I would go to a GI dr and ask if the pain could be caused by gas, also explain what meds you have taken.
