For the past 2 months I have had a serious pain in my right scapula; it usually happens at night time when I lay down; to relieve the pain I would have to bring my shoulder blades together. Some nights I cant sleep because I'm so uncomfortable. I'm unsure whether it is my shoulder blade or something else as the pain is located more towards my spine.
It's a difficult area to make an accurate diagnosis without further tests. Do you have neck pain, and do movements of the neck increase the pain? Does it also go down your arm?
Does it hurt if you take in a deep breath? Do you have any radiation along the rib towards the sternum?
Is there any reason to suspect this could come from your lungs, or other organs? A cough?
As you can see scapula pain is complex. Any problem causing serious pain for two months requires a professional evaluation. Do it; soon.
