This implies a "pinched" nerve in your neck usually related to a herniated disc. Would try nsaids and rest and see if resolves. If persists would seek eval by pcp. ...Read more

Mononeuropathy: It sounds like a small nerve is acting up. Sometimes this can happen due to injury (which I assume you didn't have) and sometimes due to medical conditions. If you don't have any other health problems, and you otherwise feel well, it is reasonable to watch and wait. If it persists over time, or becomes worse, you should see your doctor for a basic checkup. ...Read more

Cervical radiculitis: Cervical radiculitis due to compression of nerves in the cervical spine can commonly cause pain in between the shoulder blade as well as the shoulder. Referred pain or a primary shoulder etiology is also considered. Disease of the gallbladder (usually cholecystitis) can also cause pain in the right shoulder blade, but less likely in the shoulder itself. Consultation with a physician is advised. ...Read more

When I work for 10 mins, I have a burning hurt in my back right below my right shoulder blade, when I stop work it gets a lot better. What can this be?

Varies: There are a lot of possibilities and I would encourage you to get checked. Many potential causes are musculoskeletal and quite benign, such as a subscapular bursitis or a thoracic radiculopathy. But there are more potentially dangerous conditions including the possibility it is an abnormal presentation of cardiac ischemia. A detailed exam and appropriate tests can usually determine the cause. ...Read more

I get random tingling/crawling/goosebump feelings on my back under my right shoulder blade. It happens at random. What could it be?

This is very likely: A temporary nerve compression or dysfunction. The tingling nature of your symptom suggests nerve involvement. Something might be pressing on a nerve near your shoulder blade (could it more likely happen when you are lying on your back/shoulder blade?) The reassuring thing is it sounds transient and resolves quickly. Unless it worsens in frequency or intensity, or spreads in location, OK to watch. ...Read more
