  • This might sound highly unlikely at first but it could well be wind. I used to have excessive wind (undiagnosed dairy intolerance) that caused pains either in my shoulders, lower back, at the bottom of my ribcage (right side) or right across my chest seemingly randomly [rarely if ever in these places all at once]. Excess wind can pass into the blood stream and cause these awful pains. Next time try lying on your left side for half an hour. You'll soon know if it was trapped wind! Give it a go. It was definitely the issue with me when I ahd similar sounding pain. Thinking of you.
