Long story short: Burning sharp pain below my left shoulder blade in my upper back causing to the point of numbness and extreme extreme discomfort. I've googled and googled and most are saying it's a pinched muscle/nerve. My question is what is the best route I should take for recovery at this point.
I've tried releasing my back by applying pressure to the spot and leaning into my lap with the pressure(arms are too big though and I can't tell if I'm hitting the correct spot). I've also had my dad apply the pressure for 30 seconds-50 seconds and it provides temporary relief.
I'm starting back into using the hot tub at my gym tomorrow for the next couple of days to try to relieve it as well.
Tips/Advice? It's been persisting for about 5 days now.

The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook. It's about $13 from Amazon and is probably well under $20 from your local book seller. If you don't want to invest in the book, there are some online resources, including this pain chart. (I highly recommend the book though.)▪█─────█▪ Equipment Crew #35
