A few years ago I had problems with nausea, and some vomiting but not much, and I was having allot of back pain under my right shoulder blade, any way I went to convenient care and seen the nurse practitioner and she pressed on the right side of my abdomen a few inches down from my ribs, and asked me if it hurt? I told her it did not hurt my abdomen but it hurt my back right at the bottom of my right shoulder blade. She said it was my gall bladder, and she sent me to my Doctor and they did the Hida scan, and my gall bladder was not functioning and they took it out. Allot people experience what is refered to as referred pain, it is common for some people to have problems with their stomach or gall bladder and they don't feel the pain at the site that is causing it, but usually in their back or shoulder region,( referred pain) you really need to have your Doctor do a thorough exam to find the root cause of your pain!
Good luck to YOU!
