Hi there...have you been doing excercises in spite of the pain? Pain below the left shoulder blade could be due to many reasons like muscle tear/strain, neuropathy, pancreatitis, etc. It will need clinical examination. Try cold compresses and take paracetamol 650 mg if you have severe pain. Also visit a orthopedic for further evaluation.
