Back and shoulder pain

Was told it was stress and anxiety causing my pain told to take paracetomal and massage. Anyone else have this. I thought it might be my meds but gp said not.

Are you on statins? That is a side effect I get from them.


Hi,I suffered with shoulder and arm pain for several months,had x rays and physio, was told it was arthritis in my collar bone,went on to have heart attack then double bypass due to blockages and not had pain since,that was 8 years ago,since had 2nd heart attack tho !!!


I was told mine was heart related but doesn’t mean it’s us. I’ve had endocarditis before.
