When I turn my head to the left or right I get the next to my spine by my Shoulder blade. I also get the pain when I lift my arms above my head or try to touch my toes. I'm taking Betablockers for Vestibular migraine. The pain appears to be muscular and deep. There isn't any redness or swelling.

Thank you for the information,
There can be a few possible factors.
Common causes are arthritis, adhesive capsulitis, or tendinitis, rotator cuff disorders.
It can also come from pinched nerve in the neck.
I would advise to get an examination by an orthopedic doctor.
At home you can apply warm compress & take antiinflammatory analgesics like motrin, aleve if there is no contraindication.
Physiotherapy can be helpful.
Steroid injection can be done depending on the cause.
I hope this information helps.
