Sharp pain under left shoulder blade when running and still hurts when I take a deep breath. What do you recommend?

See a doctor. This is probably nothing but muscular but any pain that is worsened with breathing deserves evaluation by a doctor. This could be from a pneumothorax and can be evaluated clinically and with a chest xray. If you are having any shortness of breath at rest, go to the emergency department.
