Shoulder Blade pain when taking a deep breath

Every time I take a deep breath I get a weird pain under my left shoulder blade, it feels as if it's inside and have also felt the pain on the front of my chest (to the left also) just above the breast area. (PS: I'm male).

When it first started yesterday I felt a funny feeling in my chest, but thought nothing of it as it wasn't really painful and just a funny feeling, not pain, just a feeling, like butterflies in the stomach, but more on the left side of my chest.

It isn't excruciating, but I'm just wondering what it could be, I was thinking that maybe it is to do with my lung as it is on both sides sometimes.

It doesn't hurt breathe if I take small breaths, just when I breathe in fully in is really noticeable.

I'm also able to breath the same amount in as normal and have no shortness of breath.

I don't want to go and bother a doctor for a pulled muscle or stiff back or something stupid, but if it's still there on Monday I'll go and see one.

Any ideas what this is? Thanks

Re: Shoulder Blade pain when taking a deep breath

I was wondering how you are feeling and if you still have your pain. I am experiencing the same thing - in the same area. I am considering calling the doc this morning as the pain is really bad.

I pray you are feeling better.
