Pain around the inside joint connecting the left shoulder blade and body. What to do?

I have pain around the inside joint connecting the left shoulder blade and my body. During the day time, it does not hurt unless I move my shoulder such as putting on a jacket or lifting my arm . At night when I laid on bed, it seems to hurt more. Can you tell me what that is and what it means and what I should do? Thanks.

Thanks for your query.
Pains that you have described are likely to be due to a muscular pain most likely caused by a wrong body posture. Taking mild stretching exercise will be helpful. Pain killers and muscle relaxants will bring a short term relief.
You can do a hot fomentation and apply a local analgesic gel on the area to relieve the spasm.
I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
Take care
