Pain Under The Shoulder Blade On The Left Accompanied By Tightness?
I often feel pain under the shoulder blade or between my left ribs, as a result my breathing is disturbed and feels very tight. Every time I breathe, I feel extreme pain in the bones … What is the cause? And how to overcome it?
Thank you for the question.
Pain under the left shoulder blade that greatly interferes with breathing may indicate that there is indeed a disturbance in your respiratory tract, for example due to pleurisy, pneumonia, bronchitis, pleural effusion, asthma, and ARI (acute respiratory infection). It could also, the pain that you feel arises due to disorders of other organ systems that affect the work of the respiratory system to cause shortness, for example gastroesophageal reflux disease, heart attacks, pericarditis, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, malnutrition, nerve nerve, gastritis, gastric ulcer, disorders psychosomatic, and so on.
Need to be clarified, whenever the pain usually appears? Is the tightness so great that it makes it difficult for you to do your daily activities?
If complaints are very often repeated and feel very disturbing, you should not let them. Go check yourself directly to the doctor or doctor of internal medicine for further examination, for example with x-rays, ultrasound, heart records, or other supporting tests. Depending on the cause, your condition can later be handled differently.
In the meantime, so that pain and tightness decreases, we recommend that you first apply warm compresses to the area of pain, do not carelessly massage or massage. Do not forget, multiply rest, exercise regularly, do not smoke, do not delay eating time, and also limit the consumption of foods and drinks that irritate the digestive tract, such as spicy foods, fried foods, coconut milk, and fruits and vegetables that contain lots of gas.
Hope this helps ...
