I have been having pressure and mild pain between my shoulder blades. Can this be trapped gas.

In brief: Unlikely

It is unlikely to be trapped gas but it could be from reflux.
If you are having heartburn try an over the counter medication like zantac (ranitidine) to see if this gets rid of the sensation. It could also be musculoskeletal discomfort so try a heating pad and some gentle stretches to see if this will relieve the pain. If these suggestions do not work see your doctor
