Good evening doctors, I wanna ask what can rhomboid muscle pain causes as it been more than a year? Cause whenever the pain get severe I will feel fatigue and difficulty breathing sometimes. When is the time to see a doctor? Who should I consult? Or should I just stay and let it recover by its own? Any method to reduce or cure the pain?
