Rib pain. Why do shoulder blades and upper back pain? Help

At Night I get rib pain, on the lower rib cage, bothsides with pain in the upper back between the shoulder blades. No matter how I lay the pain is there. When I get up the rib pain goes away in a short time, but some back discomfort continues for some time then goes away. The pain will wake me out of a sound sleep. On a scale of 1 to 10, wth 1 being the least it sometime rates a 6

Thanks for writing to us
The pains that you have described are likely to be due to a muscular pain most likely caused by a wrong body posture. Taking mild pain killers and muscle relaxants will bring a short term relief. Regular stretching exercise will be helpful.
Hope this helps you.
Wishing you good health...
