Weird Shoulder Ache/Back Ache

So basically, the doc said the pain would subside as it may be due to muscles but i have had the pain for 2 years now and neither tiger balm/deep heat or voltrol will work. There is a strange ache that starts happening in my shoulder whenever, 1. its cold, 2. i carry things, 3. i do exercise (even if it doesn't consist of moving my shoulder) 4. just sitting down. Im really confused. Its not even a pain pain its an ache and its goes across my shoulder blade. It really bugs me so i would be grateful if there is a solution to why it aches so often.

I have trigger points under my shoulder blade. For me it came from repeatedly walking to work for a few miles with a heavy backpack. I've had the burning pain (which increases when I lean on my shoulder or exercise) for over 5 years. I've had physio twice but the muscle is too inflamed for them to do anything. So, they're sending me to pain management to get injections. If you can, go to a physiotherapist or someone who can try and see if there's trigger points that are not too sore to work on before it becomes too inflamed. Good luck!

Hey there so I experience that all the time. It’s awful and i’m a chef so there is no chance to rest. I take CBD it is the no psychoactive part of CBD. I have to take this instead of traditional meds because I’m clean so I can’t have most pain meds. It helps, and it’s legal. They have CBD salve, pills, gummies, and so on and it truly helps. Give it a shot and see how that helps with your pain!
