scorpio, i'm not a doctor but i have back pain between my shoulder blades - i have a lot of other pain, too but the pain in that area is the worst for me. mine is caused by degenerative disc disease, severe arthritis, and spinal stenosis. I have problems at c2, c3/4, and c5/6. surgery is not an option for me because i have so much going on. sounds like you might have a problem with one or more of your disc, too.
