Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
Pain in the middle back and under right shoulder blade is usually due to gall stones, duodenal ulcer and liver infection. Hence an ultrasound, liver function test and an upper GI endoscopy is needed for diagnosis. Cough could be due to gastric reflux. Raise head end of bed. Take Omeprazole empty stomach in morning and an antacid gel at bedtime. Refrain from smoking, alcohol, fuzzy drinks and spicy food. Walking around also helps clear gas. I would strongly recommend you to see a gastroenterologist (a specialist who looks after the diseases of our digestive system) if these tips help you. Other than that it could also be costochondritis, pleuritis (inflammation of covering of lung—needs to be checked as you have cough) or pericarditis (inflammation of covering of heart). Since you do not mention any other symptoms, it is less likely to be any of these.
Please consult your PCP for primary examination followed by proper referral. Take care!
