If you're careful, it can heal on its own, but if there's been no progress after 4-6 months, go see an orthopedic doctor. Before that, avoid straining above shoulder height.

Discuss with MD: You have a lot going on for your age, please discuss this with your doctor, you may warrant some further testing.

Multiple Things: Many sources can result in referred pain to the shoulder blade.

May not be related: Shoulder and neck pain may or may not be related. If it is related it is probably because of a pinched nerve in the neck (we call that cervical radiculopathy) that is referring pain to the shoulder. However a person can definitely have two things separately going on but usually it does not start at the same time. Meaning one usually started before the other.

I'm having back and shoulder pain on my right side. It's been there for a couple of weeks. It's more painful on some days.
Can't diagnose: This may be musculo skeletal in nature but there isn't a way to say with the available info.
Pain Assessment.: Unfortunately, although this is a simple question the answer is not. The key to treatment is an appropriate evaluation, the making of a diagnosis, and the development of a treatment plan for that diagnosis. Most pain is self limiting and resolves shortly. Persistent pain requires an evaluation by an appropriately trained provider.See 1 more doctor answer

Variable: Would start with an internist to evaluate lungs and internal structures. If nothing there move to an orthopaedic dr. Can be a spine or a shoulder problem. May even be postural from the computer. Can be referred from cervical spine. Too many possibilities.
Neck: Herniated cervical (neck) disc could irritate nerve to shoulder. If pain happens with shoulder movement then could be ligament issue.
Many Possibilities: Depending on how long it's been going on, I would consider an evaluation by a spine specialist. Sometimes it could be a muscle imbalance, early onset arthritis or scoliosis. Also could be a pinched nerve/herniated disc. Either way it might be good to figure it out and get appropriate treatment.
