Lump that moves

I have a lump on my Back on the shoulder blade area and as my girlfriend was rubbing it to help relieve some tension we noticed that something felt like it was "popping" or "cracking" and then as she robbed more we noticed that the little ball or lump she was rubbing was moving up and down   It was really painful. Is this normal?

It's a muscle knot or fiber.  You need to work your muscles out and stretch and try soaking in an Epsom salts bath.  Massage is helpful.
