    Recently I have been getting sharp pains in the right side of my upper back (near my shoulder blade area). I'm only 20 years old. Sometimes it hurts when I move a certain way, but some days it will hurt when I'm just simply taking a breath. I have no idea what it could be, but it's really starting to worry me. I just want to know whether or not it's serious enough to spend a fortune going to the doctor, you know? I'm really looking forward to hearing some answers soon. Thanks!
