    Shoulder blade ara pain when sitting in chair or car

    I woke up a little over a week ago and had some pain in my left shoulder blade area when I woke up. I hadn't done any physical activity before that, but tend to sleep on my left side.

    Horrible Back Pain After Fell Down Stairs

    I am a 27 year old healthy female who fell down a flight of stairs and now I'm experiencing horrible constant pain, bruising, swelling, it hurts more when I try to stand let alone walk or turn in any position whatsoever. The only way I have some relief from the pain is by laying flat on my back. The focus of the pain is my lower right side where I landed first. I am wondering if I should go to the ER or what suggestions anyone may have.

    Sprain or Break?

    I am a 24 year old female with marfans syndrome, and an entire week ago my knee gave out and I fell.

I went the same afternoon for X-rays, where only a physicians assistant read the X-rays himself and proceeded to tell....
