Seeing a history of injury / collision, complaints of pain in the shoulder blades can be caused by these injuries, can be injuries to muscles, injuries to nerves, fractured bones or even fractures.
However, apart from a history of injury, shoulder pain can also be caused by other reasons such as poor sleeping position and pressing the left side of the body, a history of holding heavy objects with the shoulder, arthritis, brittle bones, pain from severe chest pain. radiating to the shoulder blades, for example in cases of heart attack, aortic dissection / tearing of blood vessels, pulmonary embolism, scoliosis, and excessive stress.
I suggest that you consult a doctor directly so that you can find out the exact cause, whether it is related to a previous injury or caused by other things above. The doctor will conduct an interview, physical examination, and support such as x-rays and cardiac records if needed to determine the cause of the pain.
