The MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) images (attachment removed to protect the patient's identity) are of the thoracic spine. There are Schmorls nodes in the end plates of the lower thoracic vertebral levels, which are a kind of degenerative change and are mild in your case. This will not cause pain in the shoulder blade area. The visualized thoracic spinal cord is normal, with no posterior disc bulge or spinal cord compression and abnormalities. No pre or para-vertebral soft tissue mass lesion is seen. Bony spinal canal measurements are within normal limits. Your shoulder blade area pain can be due to nerve pinching in the cervical spine. I can see a mild posterior thecal indentation of the lower cervical disc levels; however, the complete findings can be visualized only by looking at MRI cervical spine images. Please send any MRI cervical spine images if you have got a scan done. Please include details of any previous treatment given for any cervical spine problems.
