Left side pain (shoulder blade, going into arm pit and chest)

Chest pain has many causes, but the one that concerns me in your case is the possibility of pulmonary embolism:
An evaluation requires a doctor’s exam and some testing that will include some blood work, an EKG and probably a CT scan of your chest. If your doctor is concerned about your heart, he might recommend a cardiac ECHO as well.
Hope this helps,
