How can I stop the pain in my back? I pulled a muscle in my back, it is by my shoulder blade. When i move the wrong way or move to fast, i can't breath. There is excruciating pain. I can't move at all, it seems.

In brief: Try

Try basics first with hot packs, anti inflammatories and stretching exercises.
If you have persistent symptoms further evaluation may be needed to differentiate between internal problems vs. Muscular problems.
