I cannot: explain the legs but the pain under your shoulder blade is a common injury of the sub(under)scapularis muscles...(usually from pushing a heavy object) It is aggravated by motion of your upper extremity Apply HEAT and take OTC Ibuprofen or Alleve. This tends to be "stubborn" so if pain worsens or does not improve see your PCP (Primary Care Provider) Hope this helps! Dr Z
