Doctor

A:   Hi.
Thanks for your query and an elucidate history.

Sharp pains between the shoulder blades being referred to the right arm must be taken seriously, Urgent ECG must be taken, with Eco and further cardiac tests. You have given all the positive history related to such a problem.
If all the test related to the heart are normal only then we can think of esophagitis, cervical spondylitis and such causes.

I hope this answers you query.
