Pain in between your shoulders, please help

Have any of you women experienced pain in between your shoulder blades for no reason ? Heart problem maybe ? My father has heart disease , three open heart surgeries and numerous angioplasties performed. He had his first heart attack in his late 30 s. My mother had to have her main heart valve replaced a couple years ago. I have chest pain from time to time that has been chalked up to anxiety , so i take Xanax. None of my fathers heart problems have ever shown up on an EKG , even when he was having a heart attack. So any time i have gone into the ER for chest pain they do an EKG, which comes out normal and tell me i have anxiety and to go home and chill. For the last two days i have had constant pain between my shoulder blades directly behind my heart. Of course if i thought they would do anything about it i would go to the ER, or if it got worse. I have no insurance until Dec 1st. Could i be trying to have a heart attack? No other syptoms besides occasional chest pain and anxiety. What do you think? I can assure you it s NOT gas...i am a gassy person and i know what that feels I know you can get gas pain anywhere, but i assure you this is not gas.

I think you are having panic for the pain between your shoulders, panic, anxiety and stress all run together, you are probably having spasms in those muscles. Like stress headaches, but instead of stress headaches, its affecting your shoulders, or the muscles there, even behind your neck.
