How old are you ? Male or female ? And do these symptoms appear during exertion ? I would recommend a treadmill test to check the endurance capacity of your heart as resting ECG can be normal. If the treadmill test is normal then you need not worry about it being cardiac. Can be early neck fatigue.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

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.
