  • Back Pain

    Hi. My husband has been having back pain the last few days. It's most likely a sprained muscle, but since some people feel heart pain in the back, I thought I would ask how it feels. His is a sharp pain just to the right of the left shoulder blade. It's sort of the middle of his back, slightly more toward the shoulder blade. Any thoughts?

    This is when you call the doctor. No one should be in pain for several days without at least talking to a nurse to make sure it isn't really serious.

    Everyone is different. However, typical heart attack pain (if there is such a thing) is usually more crushing than stabbing.

    Take care and keep us posted,
