Trigger point?: Pain between the shoulder blades and arm tingling is often a pinched nerve, a trigger point or a muscle strain. Rarely something serious like heart or aorta problems can do this. A careful history and physical exam can usually clarify the issue. While rare, sometimes you need a CT or MRI to rule out more serious problems.
