Pain upper right spine + right arm

So I've had some pain predominately between my upper right shoulder blade & spine region.
I'll list the symptoms i've had along with this in hope someone may be able to have a vague idea of what i'm suffering with.

Pain which occurs are as follows

  • Dull stabbing pain on and off (upper back)
  • Dull pain at time when taking deep breaths in the same region
  • Tender right ribs at times
  • Sometimes when sitting after a period of time, taking a deep breath can create a "popping" sound in the same region which only occurs once until i readjust my sitting posture
  • Right arm can sometimes have a tingling sensation / feels weaker

What I've found to relieve these issues are 

  • Stretching my elbows back towards each other which gives a "crackling" sound in my spine region 
  • Doing push ups normally relieves the pain for a short period of time

The physio i went to recently suggested for me to do exercise to strengthen my serratus anterior.

Sorry for the lengthy post, i was just curious of peoples opinions / possible experiences with similar issues.

Thanks for reading.
