In brief: MRI w/without Gad

Depending on how high or low on your shoulder blade, this area localizes to either the c4 or t2 nerve roots.
An entrapped neurofibroma at one of these levels may be producing the burning pain. An MRI of the cervical spine extended to the high cervical region with and without gadolinium should show any abnormalities in these regions. You would then need to decide surgery or pain management.

In brief: Neurofibroma

This may be due to a neurofibroma along one of the cervical spinal nerves (possibly c7).
You should have an evaluation and MRI by a neurologist. Treatment will depend upon your findings and your mri.

In brief: May be related

Neurofibromas affect nerves and sometimes symptoms can arrise secondary to the effect neurofibromas have on these nerves.
In your case if you have involvement of cervical spine or shoulder area the symptoms may be related. You should consult a neurologist if persists for exam and possibly imaging.
