Dear Ronald,


I suggest you see a doctor immediately.  It will be good if the doctor clears the vital organs in your chest, as problems with the heart and lungs can refer pain to the shoulder blades and arms. 

If all are well, then you can relax about dying of this pain now.  The cause might lie in the muscle/skeletal structures and manual treatment, a hot water bottle and stretches of the muscles might help.

All the best,
Susan Grobler
