    Hi there, John -


    I'm sorry it's taken so long for someone to find your question and answer it here! Did you ever find out what was causing this pain in your shoulder blade and arm? Though only a doctor can tell you for certain what was causing the pain, I can tell you that it sounds like it might be nerve pain from a problem in your back or shoulder. Have you had a doctor look into the issue? If so, you might consider coming back and posting what the diagnosis was. It might be helpful to some other members of our community.


    In the meantime, here are some links that you might find helpful:

    Be well, and best of luck to you!
