    Pain between the shoulder blades can feel like a knife in the back. And this type of pain is soooo common in women, especially large breasted women. Weakness in the muscles around the shoulder can lead to the pain of fatigued, strained, achy muscles. Stiffness in the upper thoracic spine causes a painful, stuck feeling. And sometimes a cervical spine disc herniation can refer a knife-like pain between the shoulder blades. Find a good physical medicine doctor to help you find some solutions.
