Upper stomach ache & shoulder blade pain

I'm sure there's someone out there that can advise. For over 3 months now I have been having horrendous bouts of nausea (but not actually being sick), perhaps 1-3 times a day and have a constant ache in the top of my tummy just between my rib cage (which is tender to touch). For roughly 2 months now I've had piercing pains in my left shoulder blade (4-5 times daily) and very strangly when it isn't hurting it itches but under the skin, if that makes sense.  I have had an ultrasound which was all fine and had various blood tests and samples done which were also fine. I'm soon to see a stomach specialist, but I wondered if anyone had experienced this sort of thing and if anyone could shed any light?  It's having a huge effect on my work and private life, it's getting me down and I feel exhausted...
