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?

Greetings, Thank you for your question.

From your complaints, your conditions may develop as a result of:

  • sitting for long periods

Nevertheless, it can also be caused by other serious problems that might need further examination by a doctor, such as:

  • injuries from straining, overstretching, or tearing the muscles
  • Myositis - inflammation of muscles
  • Polymyalgia rheumatica
  • Osteoarthritis

You may discuss with our doctor online to know how to get the right treatment for your condition, as the possible underlying conditions must be treated concurrently.
