In brief: Need more History

Without more info, it would be hard to give you an answer.How old are you.
Do you have a history of arthitis or back/neck problems? Was there any sudden injury or did the pain occur gradually? What are your activities-are you doing something different like carrying a new child or doing more lifting. What is your posture like? Does the back/shoulder pain start before the headaches? Get to a doctor.

In brief: Multiple Things

Many sources can result in referred pain to the shoulder blade.
Along with the neurogenic sources like cervical (c6 for example) and the suprascapular nerve, we also see many patients with occult shoulder pathology have referred pain to this area. Patients who are very flexible can also have occult shoulder instability refer pain to this area. Please consider seeing your doctor.
