Pinched Nerve/Muscle: Most times back pain that is sudden onset will resolve. He should use anti-inflammatory meds like ibuprofen, aleve around the clock and even tylenol (acetaminophen) to help. If this does not resolve he should see his doctor for a muscle relaxant as well. If it still does not resolve, I would recommend him to see a spine specialist for a full evaluation and testing. He may need to get an MRI to see inside.
Depends...: Can definitely be due to a lot of issues - can be something as simple as strained muscles to a disc herniation. Recommend discussing with your pcp or pain specialist to determine if diagnostic testing is necessary.

Muscle strain: Given that your pain is positional, isolated highly suggestive muscle/ligament origin. Our latissimus dorsi is large muscle attaching over broad area of our mid back/flank area. We use this muscle when we use our upper extremities. Trying to square up to what you are lifting so arms are symmetric, bend at the knees and keep objects close to your body when lifting will decrease strain.
Anti-inflammatory: Upper back pain usually comes from a degenerative joint or disc. Sometimes it's from a muscle strain or sprain. It is common for this type of pain to refer to the head as well as shoulder blade. Early treatment options include a short course of nsaids (advil, aleve), gentle massage, moist heat, and focusing on posture. If pain lasts greater than 2 weeks see your physician.
Get Checked: Sorry to hear about your pain. Unfortunately you will have to be looked at by a provider to help figure out what this is. There are a huge number of possibilities, some serious and others not serious. Good Luck!
Musculotendinous: 30's male w. Chronic unilateral rhomboid muscle region pain suggests localized tendonitis. No history of trauma given, but concern arises for strenuous athletics or weight lifting.
