What is the cause of my upper back pain while swallowing?
Patient :My back has a dull pain in between my right shoulder blade and my spine. This turns into sharp pain when I eat or drink something and is even worse if the food or beverage is very hot or very cold. It does not hurt worse when I breathe in and out. It has hurt for 4 days. I have tried Aleve and a massage, both only providing temporary relief.
Symptoms: Consistent dull pain, sharp pain when swallowing
