Back pain between shoulders, pricking sensation on left side, pain on breathing. Treatment?

Hello there, I have upper back pain between my shoulders. It feels like I ve been kicked and winded. I keep getting a pins and needle sensation (top left side). Also I experience pain between my shoulders when I breath in deeply. Additionally if I move suddenly I experience a sharp shooting pain. It s very uncomfortable... Any suggestions of what it might be and how I can improve it. Kind regards
