Multiple Things

Many sources can result in referred pain to the shoulder blade. Along with the neurogenic sources like cervical (C6 for example) and the suprascapular nerve, we also see many patients with occult shoulder pathology have referred pain to this area. Patients who are very flexible can also have occult shoulder instability refer pain to this area. Please consider seeing your doctor.

My upper back hurts between my shoulder blades. SOmeone said stones. What ar they?

Refered pain

Extremity-joint-shoulder
Gallstones and an inflamed gallbladder can cause referred pain between the shoulders ( Pain is called referred when the actual problem isn't where it hurts). Usually, this is accompanied by nausea & vomiting. If it isn't, then gallstones probably Aren't the cause of your pain.

Whenever I slightly move my neck down, my back hurts, more specifically in between my shoulder blades. What are my options?

Many possibilities

It sounds like you may have a pinched nerve in your neck, perhaps at the C5 or C6 levels and you may also be developing a secondary frozen shoulder. Learn more here: http://theshouldercenter.com/pinched-nerve-in-shoulder.htm and http://theshouldercenter.com/Frozen-Shoulder.htm See your doctor

Upper right back below shoulder blade hurts when I take a deep breath?

It depends

Open-uri20131108-2980-1wlzftz
There are many possible causes. An irritation of a nerve in the thoracic pain can cause pain to radiate around one side of the trunk. A gallbladder problem can cause pain radiating into the right side as can a lung and kidney problem. A detailed exam and appropriate studies can usually tell the cause. Consider being checked. Thank you for the question.

Popped neck and now back hurts below shoulder blade. How do I get rid of this pain?

NSAIDs, PT

Massage
This is probably coming from your neck. You would probably benefit from a course of physical therapy, anti-inflammatories, and a cervical pillow. Additional testing may be needed if you dont improve with those treatments. See your doctor for evaluation.

More info?

Did you injure yourself? How long does it last? anything make it better? anything make it worse? does food affect the pain? Have you had any surgery ? how long has it been there? have you tried any medications? did they work? Any nausea? fevers? If this is recent you could try ibuprofen, heat, massage. If long standing or worsening see a doctor to begin workup

I think I pulled a muscle in my upper back below the left shoulder blade and it hurts. How do I fix this?

Exercise, ice, heat

Open-uri20131123-26563-13vtrxq
Gentle range of motion, stretching and walking or any low-impact cardiovascular exercise. Pain can be relieved with over-the-counter medications like Advil or Aleve. Ice for about 45 minutes will address inflammation and swelling, never apply ice to the skin, always over a towel or clothing. Follow this by heat for about 20 to 25 minutes to help soothe and relax tight muscles.
