This pinches the cervical outflow, and pulls the shoulder blades up and out, resulting in soft tissue pain.

MRI w/without Gad: Depending on how high or low on your shoulder blade, this area localizes to either the c4 or t2 nerve roots. An entrapped neurofibroma at one of these levels may be producing the burning pain. An MRI of the cervical spine extended to the high cervical region with and without gadolinium should show any abnormalities in these regions. You would then need to decide surgery or pain management.
