Pain is in my back and goes under my sholder blade, pain comes and goes it seems heat and my massager help. but it is like a tooth ache pain and prevents me from sleeping all night.

Expert:  Salar replied 8 years ago.
it could be from the pinched nerve but also important to rule out other causes including heart disease, gall bladder issues and or pneumonia / clot. I would advise seeking help with the doctor sooner than later so make sure things are checked properly. As for pain you can take aleeve or muscle relaxant but an exam to confirm is a must
