You need an examination to know whether your symptoms are something to be worried about. I've attached a website with some helpful information about chest pain.

I am having a sharp pain in the upper left back pain around the shoulder blade. It only hurts when I breath deeply. In good shape. Never happened.

Pleurisy?: This is typically very painful with deep breaths, but only lasts a number of minutes. Its thought to be due to the lining of the lung sticking temporarily to the side of the chest wall. As always, if you're concerned something is wrong , see your primary care provider within the next week or so. Hope this helps! ...Read more

When i run i get sharp stabbing pain in right side?

Muscle spasm: When you run, you use the 3 layers of muscles in your abdomen. These flat muscles, when used, can "spasm" or contract very vigorously. This causes a sharp stabbing burning pain, a lot like a charley horse in the calf (also a muscle spasm). If this happens to you, stop running, rub firmly right on the stabbing painful area, and the muscle will relax; just like when you rub your calf. Good luck! ...Read more
