    Depends...how long you have had it and how annoying it is and if over the counter pain pills don't help. Sometime gallbladder issues have referred pain to the back shoulder blade. good luck.

    As Ann said it could be some type of referred pain or could be related to your cervical spine. Only a doctor can figure out which diagnostic direction to go.

    Curious-Do you spend lots of time texting, playing WII, Xbox, guitar hero, computer or sports? These things could influence those muscles.It could be your pillow or how you sleep. Have you fallen lately? Are you in college hauling a heavy backpack?

    If it continues more than a few weeks you probably should have it checked out. Heart shows up there too but you are young so that is unlikely (unless you have other health issues).

    the pain that i have only happens at night when i am sitting in bed and i am in college but i do not carry a heavy bag it has only one book in it. i dont spend a lot of time on the computer nor do i do any heavy lifting and its been going on for about a month maybe a month and a half. i also have chest pain it usually feels like a squeezing pain close to the center of my chest

    Don't ignore chest pain-if you don't have a doctor go to Campus Health and get checked out.
