Pain in right shoulder blade at night
Hi, I have this terrible pain in my right shoulder blade only at night when I go to bed as soon as I lay down; it also makes my both my arms sore. My arms feel like when you've worked out - muscle pain. When I get up in the morning it's still sore for a while and then it's gone. This has been for the last 3 nights. Should I go see my GP?

Hi Mc
It may be pressure on a nerve root - yes please see your doctor as you may need x/rays of the spine?
