Sore armpit and pain going through my right shoulder blade when moving my arm. What could be wrong?

Could be a tear

Extremity-joint-shoulder
I would get yourself to an orthopedist. This could resolve with physical therapy and proper rest or you could have some ligament or labrum damage. Either way a full evaluation of your shoulder is warranted.

When I sit I feel a sore throbbing pain between my right shoulder blade and spine. Should I get an x-ray?

Cerv Radiculopathy

Stringio
Pain here is likely a pinched nerve from arthritic pressure and/or a herniated disc, or tendinitis (levator syndrome). Aggravated by poor posture at a computer. An exam by your doc can help determine if there is significant injury deserving of further studies or treatment. No hurry if not worsening, but, should be seen if not getting better. Nonsurgical usually helps. Try SalonPas Hot patches.

Costochondritis
Two things come to mind. This pain could be muscular, like "costochondritis," and might respond to heat and anti-inflammatories. Also, I wonder about early shingles, especially if the pain is reproduced by light touch in that area. If there is (or soon is) a rash there, and if the location of the pain is only on one side of your body, this could be it. Try the heat & rest over weekend be seen Mon

Aching and tingling in right shoulder,down arm into hand, wrist and hand swelling Female age 47

Numbness

Numbness and tingling of the extremities are typically seen in peripheral neuropathies. Swelling is a typical symptoms of inflammation. Any history of trauma or rheumatic disease? For a better orientation you need to provide more details! I think the best option at this point is to go talk to your PCP or your family physician.
