This is commonly seen in people who have bad physical habits like carrying heavy bags or women with over weight breasts or abdomen..
This causes strain over the muscles between your scapula and their connected vertebrae.
Burning or pain could be a sign of nerve pinched into the vertebrate ..
Treatment is habitual ..posture correction and losing overweight in the front .
Wearing bras with good lifting ability .
Physical therapy and chiropractic can help you so much.
A hot pack every night on that area .and scapular protraction stretching exercises.
Thanks..

In my opinion you have C3/4 C4/5 cervical disc lesion
I recommend you do an MRI scan to confirm

Good Luck

this can be due to cervical slipped disc.

Use cervical collar.

HI
IT MAY BE DUE TO INTERSCAPULAR FIBROMYOSITIS.
IF ANALGESIC MUSCLE RELAXANT TABLETS AND GEL APPLICATION DOES NOT HELP, YOU CAN CONSIDER TAKING A LOCAL STEROID INJECTION SHOT.
