Muscular

Massage
In all probability it is muscular, however, if it is a long term or re-occurring problem, I would at least ask my doc for a chest x-ray.

Had a cough for a month & sinus infection. Now on the 9th day of taking antibiotic. I have sharp, stabbing pain now from left shoulder blade to under left breast.

Go back to doctor

Antibiotics
This will, at the very least, require a thorough physical exam, and probably a chest imaging study. Go back and discuss with the doctor who prescribed the antibiotic. Good luck.

What does it mean when you have a stabbing pain at the base of your left shoulder blade in your back?

No trauma?

Massage
If you have not experienced a trauma, then the likely etiology of your pain is an irritated nerve in your neck. Anti-inflammatories and a formal course of physical therapy is the first line of treatment. An examination with an orthopaedic surgeon including xrays of both your neck and shoulder can help confirm the diagnosis.

This evening I started with a really sharp stabbing pain in my left shoulder and I cannot inhale properly as it hurts too much please help?

Doctor can evaluate

Having trouble breathing due to sharp chest pain is a serious enough for an evaluation right away. A doctor can check to see if there is a pneumothorax or another chest problem. Evaluation can be done at an E.R., where it is easy to get a chest xray.
