In brief: It depends

The most common reason for pain between the shoulder blades is probably muscle tension.
Muscle tension pain can be worse in the evening, after a day of stress and work. Sometimes busy people don't focus on their bodies, and then at night they become more aware of physical symptoms. Red flags to see a doctor: fevers/chills, neurological symptoms that are worsening, pain that wakes you up.
