Pain between shoulders
Hi Doc

I have a pain on my back between the shoulders. I used to feel it only when I' m very angry or stressed, but now it' s so strong and I feel it even if I' m fine. I can' t sleep, I feel like I have a hole between my shoulders.

Dear Amo
You probably have muscle spasm or a trigger point between the shoulder blades. It should help to see a physiotherapist and to put a hot water bottle on the area when it is really sore. Your doctor will be able to prescribe some muscle relaxants for you.
