Upper back pain between shoulder blades.

Patient: Hi,I have a shark ache and pain between my shoulder blades and upper back. It isnt there while i dancing but whenever I twist, lean forward, or go to stand or sit up, it hurts ALOT. Whilst I am dancing I feel no pain, and also when I am laying down which is strange. I also crave salt constantly, and I am not sure why. I just keep wanting to have salty foods. My period has also been officially missed by 2 months. So it has been around 2.5 months since my last period. I just want t know whats wrong with me.Thanks

 

 

Symptoms: Sore upper back, sore between shoulder blades, missed period, salt cravings, extremely tired around 12pm daily.
