What causes fluttering sensation around upper back and shoulders?

Hello. I m just curious and wondered if this is something I should be concerned with. About 12:30 pm, I ve noticed a fluttering sensation around upper left back, under shoulder blades. It has been going on since that time. Its now 5.5 hours later and the flutter is still present. There are no other symptoms or signs.

Consult an orthopedic and get evaluated. An MRI scan is required for further assessment.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further. Wishing you all the best.

I have noticed over the past several days that I have a slight tingle on my upper left back across my shoulder and along my upper left arm. This does not hurt but I also noticed this tonight even when I was lying down on my bed prior to going to sleep tonight. I do not have any chest pains and I feel great.

I am having a burning type pain in the upper left portion of my back close to the shoulder blade. I can also at times feel a warm sensation in the same place when I eat something warm. At times I will have a sharp pain at the same place that is uncomfortable and taking ibuprofen seems to help,but am feeling this throughout the day and symptoms are getting worse.
