sudden pain below left scapula

I've never had that type of pain before, and rarely have any pain. It's totally unusual. The pain presented at about 9:30 a.m. about 8 days after biking accident. Until about 8:30pm on the same day it presented — so for about 12 hours– the pain was somewhat acute: it was unavoidable, but sitting up very straight, and stretching the arm back helped. Breathing very deep as I do fairly regularly with weekly yoga class and every day wake up increased the pain.

It has since subsided a bit, but is still there, in that same location. A deep breath does increase it but not to the level it wasthe first 12 hours. I am scheduled to see my doctor in a month or so, and am hoping this will wait til then – as it's difficult to get in.

@Bronte I wonder if you bruised a rib when you took that tumble? With a pronouncement of pain on deep breath, there is added strain to rib/diaphragm area on that intake of air. Perhaps a strain of the shoulder. Is it on the same side you landed on with the fall? If the pain is not subsiding, perhaps you can plead your case to the medical office and be seen earlier. I'm certain neither you or they would want a condition to exacerbate due to their not being able to fit you in. That could be grounds for some unfavorable action!
