Scapular pain

A nagging scapular pain since 4 months , I have been experiencing , which is not stopping despite medication and physiotherapy ( for 3 weeks ). X rays showed initial stages of cervical spondylysis , which should have healed after medication and physio . The pain at times makes the arms numb and cannot carry shoulder bags for long , even now .More than the neck pain its the left shoulder blade which hurts - the feeling being like something stuck accompanied at times by a creeping sensation when working at the kitchen counter for more than 15 minutes . So what seems to be the problem and what should be the course ahead to crystallize on the problem area and start proper medication?
