    I have something like that in my upper back. They sound like they could be myofascial trigger points. Have you ever tried myofascial massage? I've been able to relieve my shoulder pain by self message and by putting a tennis ball in a sock and then rolling it against my back against a wall. The goal was to increase circulation in the area and try to dissolve those tight spots. Its taken awhile but it's been quite helpful.
