Pain from neck into left shoulder blade

Hey everyone,

Yesterday I was sitting on the kitchen floor wiping down the cabinets for about 10 minutes when all of a sudden I got a pinch in the upper part of my left shoulder blade. It tightened up quickly, so much that when I turn my head to the right the pain shoots down the left side of my neck into that part of my upper back.

I've had "catches" like this before, and they usually loosen up in a couple of hours, but it's going on 24 hours now and nothing is helping. Advil, heat, cold...nothing.

I'm sure it's nothing requiring major medical attention, but I just can't seem to get it to loosen for some relief.

Anyone have some good stretches or something I can try to get rid of this thing. It's just sucking the life out of me at this point. Thanks a ton.
