Upper back pain between shoulder blades.


Q: 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.


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

A:   Hi,
Thank you for posting your query on ATD.
I have gone through your query and understand your concern. You may be having deficiency of some vitamin and trace elements deficiency.As you salt craving so should investigate for electrolyte disturbance. Vitamin D level checked and if found low it can be supplemented. You can take vitamins and trace elements supplements.
Hope your query get answered.
Wishing you a good health.
Take care.
