Pain near shoulder blades. How to get relief?

My shoulders hurt near my shoulder blades, but on the outside. It has been 2 weeks now. I started out with neck pain then left shoulder pain on the top when I lift arms. It then moved to the right shoulder on the top as well when arm was lifted. It then moved to right shoulder blade then back to underarm and side and now beside both shoulder blades.
