Thank you so much for sharing your experiences and taking the time to help others, I truly appreciate your kindness.
I am a 42 yr old female
I have severe (charley horse,stabbing, pulsating) pain between my shoulder blades( mostly R sided). I have experienced the pain briefly and did not pay any attention to it, until the other day. I started having the pain at aprx. 7:30 am I had it for 12 hrs straight, all I could do was lie on my left side and not move. I slept for most of the day. I woke at 2 am with the pain lasting only aprx 10 minutes.
I again got the pain a few days later at 9 am and it lasted for aprx. 20 - 30 mins.
I have been also having severe pain in my arms (feels like a blood pressure cuff is to tight) from the top of my shoulders inside my arms radiating into my hands and sometimes fingers. My arms feel very weak and sometimes the pain causes me to hunch over pulling my shoulders forward.
I have no chest pain.
My doctor is aware of my symptoms and told me to go to the ER if it happens again.
My dear friend continues to try and convince me that it is heart related, I just can't seem to wrap my brain around that idea.
Are my symptoms typical of heart related issues?
Thank you for any and all thoughts , I am grateful to all of you for your time.
Oh , I forgot my HDL is 34 if that means anything???
