Belly pain?: Pain can be referred to that area from the gall bladder and occasionally stomach. Do you have any belly pain or nausea, vomiting? If fever, see MD.

Could cervical steonosis cause pain near right shoulder blade?

Yes: Cervical stenosis can cause radiating pain anywhere from the neck, through the shoulder region and into the arm. It could also refer pain down near towards the blade, or there could be concurrent myofascial pain. With proper medication and physical therapy, if there's no neurologic compromise, the symptoms should be controlled. Should see a medical doctor.

A few options: Sharp pain in the periscapular area can be related to myofascial (muscle) strain , primarily rhomboid , serratus, and infraspinatus muscles. If the pain radiates toward the front, consider intercostal neuralgia (an irritation of the nerve associated with each rib). If the pain is at the upper shoulder blade radiating out toward the shoulder, it may be a suprascapular neuralgia.

Have a deep pain above right shoulder blade, what causes the pain?

Many possibilities: The differential is long but here are a few of the more common considerations: referred pain from the cervical spine (particularly C5 which supplies some of the muscles of the scapula), intrinsic shoulder pathology (impingement syndrome, rotator cuff tears...), brachial neuritis (parsonage turner syndrome) and entrapment neuropathies (dorsal scapular nerve). Please meet with your doc. Good luck.
