what could cause pain below left shoulder blade?

Varies: There are a lot of possibilities, it can be from the muscles and soft tissues around the scapula; it could represent an irritation of a nerve in the mid back; there are also underlying structures in that area that can cause pain as well such as the pancreas causing left sided peri scapular pain. Don't hesitate to be seen.
