i feel pain in the area of shoulder blade and i found some muscle are hard there. It might be due to the Trapezius muscle.

Thanks for your query.

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.
you can do a hot fomentation and apply a local analgesic gel on the area to relieve the spasm

I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
Take care
