Shoulder Blade Pain and Heart Attack

I don’t want to panic you, but shoulder pain can be a symptom of a heart attack. Men often report feeling pain in their shoulder areas just prior to suffering a heart attack. Women seem to report feeling pain in their shoulder blade area.

There are many other causes of shoulder blade pain, but it is important to be aware of the possibility of shoulder pain being a symptom of a heart attack and if in any doubt, see a doctor immediately.
