Don't know: By telling your doctor your age and length of time symptoms are present will help you get a much better opinion. Not enough information here; could be benign, could be serious. It would be more concerning if the pain traveled like a sword from the back to the front & would suggest medical evaluation asap. If traveled along the ribs, could be viral, nerves, somatic dysfunction, internal, . .........See 1 more doctor answer

Mid upper back pain btwn shoulders when riding stationary bike. Lasted a second but pain went to my front. Been having neck issues/tension headaches.
Thoracic Spine: Thoracic spine areas will allow nerves to exit out of the spine and wrap around into the chest wall and abdomen. So herniated discs there can cause pain into these areas as well. I would consider seeing a pain specialist for treatment options like epidural steroid injection or even facet joint treatments.See 1 more doctor answer

Upper back pain: Upper back pain involves the thoracic vertebral bodies, the rib heads that attach to the spine, the tendons and ligaments that insert on/in the spine, and discs between the vertebrae. The tendons and ligaments become more lax during pregnancy in preparation for the baby going through the birth canal. Massage and ice may relieve the pain. See a spine specialist for a diagnosis and treatment.

Back/neck pain: If you have arthritis in the low back, then you likely have arthritis in the neck too. The nerve pain can be relieved with neuropathic pain medications. Anti-inflammatory and muscle relaxer medications can relieve the pain related to the joints, tendons and muscles of the spine. Stretching exercises, physical therapy and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation may help too.

Posture!: Most of the people that come to me with this type of pain (pain not from an injury) are doing something repeatedly or for long periods of time where they hold their arms out in front of them. (reading, computing, etc.) they have pain in the rhomboidal muscles, or trapezius. They respond to nsaias and stretching exercises usually, with physical therapy for some. Correcting the posture can help.See 1 more doctor answer

Varies: Commonly, upper back/shoulder blade pain can be from the neck or bursitis around the blade. Upper back pain could be from the shoulder or referred. Common referred sources include: abdomen, heart and neck. Shoulder sources include: arthritis, labral tears, instability, tendinitis, rotator cuff tears, bursitis, painful bony spurs etc. Ribcage pain can be from rib joints. See orthopedics.
Many Possibilities: Given that this has been going on for so long, 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.See 1 more doctor answer
