Stabbing pain between shoulder blades, what's wrong?

If the pain

Pain
is worse with positional change or movement, it could be due to misalignment of thoracic vertebrae from bad posture or workplace ergonomics. If you don't have any chest tightness, sweating or shortness or breath, then try simple things like rolling your back on a foam roller to see if they'll realign. Then see an osteopath or a physical therapist.

When i reach, what is that stabbing pain between my shoulder blades??

See Orthopedist

Pain
Commonly, shoulder blade pain can be from the neck or bursitis around the blade. The abdomen, heart and neck can also refer pain to the shoulder region. Ribcage pain from rib joints can cause pain around the shoulder blades. Shoulder problems such as arthritis, labral tears, instability, tendinitis, rotator cuff tears, bursitis, painful bony spurs etc may need to be considered as well. See ortho

After sleeping 6 hours, I get stabbing pain between my shoulder blades along my spine. Inhaling causes rib cage pain (not sick). Is my MS a factor?

Shoulder pain

Multiple_sclerosis
MS may be a factor, but more likely muscle strain. Also consider sprain or referred nerve root/dorsal nerve irritation.

Could i be having a heart attack? This morning, out of the blue, my right arm was sore. as the day progressed the arm has gotten more and more painful - stabbing pain that radiates up towards my shoulder and neck. I have not done anything unusual in terms

Symptoms

Symptoms of a heart attack are "classically" described as a pressure, heaviness or tightness on, or IN the chest, and may be accompanied by shortness of breath, nausea, sweating, arm pain (usually LEFT), neck pressure or discomfort, or NONE of the above. Women may be more likely to have UNUSUAL symptoms, such as SHORTNESS OF BREATH alone, or unusual abdominal pains or breathing difficulties. YOUR RIGHT ARM symptoms can be from a pinched nerve in the neck or armpit, and compromised nerve in the wrist area (known as "Carpal Tunnel Syndrome"), or compromised blood flow to the arm. IT IS NOT easy to connect your BACK PAIN with the arm pain; but occasionally neck (or "Cervical Spine") impingements on the spinal cord nerves can cause pains to upper back, neck area, or arms. A COMPLETE history and examination with your primary health provider is the best idea to get to the bottom of this problem

What is sharp stabbing pain in left shoulder blade?

Muscular

Massage
In all probability it is muscular, however, if it is a long term or re-occurring problem, I would at least ask my doc for a chest x-ray.

How to treat stabbing pain below my right shoulder blade?

A few options

Sharp pain in the periscapular area can be related to myofascial (muscle) strain ,primarily rhomboid , serratus, and infraspinatus muscles. If the pain radiates toward the front, consider intercostal neuralgia (an irritation of the nerve associated with each rib). If the pain is at the upper shoulder blade radiating out toward the shoulder, it may be a suprascapular neuralgia.
