56 yr F. Experiencing pain behind right shoulder blade along with tightness around the ribs. When taking deep breaths I have a burning tightness in the esophagus . I am also running a low grade temp, mainly in the evening and night time. I dont notice a shortness of breath but any exertion leaves me feeling exhausted. This started about a week ago but is getting worse and making me feel fatigued. I normally have a high tolerance to pain. What to do.

It looks to me that you are having cervical spondylosis with fever and myalgia. It can be a viral fever, my advise to you is to get your blood investigations and x rays and if there is any increase cell count then you need to take antibiotics and antippyretics. Meanwhile take Ibuprofen for fever.
