Tingling in shoulder blade, noticeable when inhaling. Taking Ibuprofen. What could it be?

I have a very mild tingling in my left shoulder blade that has been going on for the past week or so. This pain also feels like a permanent tightness in the neck. It is noticeable upon inhaling. When I lay on my stomach or stretch my left arm out it goes away. I took Ibuprofen and it did not take the pain away. Also, when I wake up in the morning it is not noticeable for an hour or so. What could it be? Also, the pain is really just a slight discomfort that has become annoying.

Thanks for writing to us.
The tingling sensation in the shoulder and in the neck that you are feeling is likely to be due to a nerve related symptom. Most of the times it is due to a mild nerve compression at the level of cervical spine. Do consult an orthopedician for proper management.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
