Stabbing pain near shoulder blade.

Was woken up in the middle of the night a couple of nights ago with sharp pains in my left hand side, in rib area, not right up under my arm pit. It's come and gone a bit over the two days in between but now I am in a fairly constant pain in a straight line around my body from my side level with my boob, round to a stabbing pain near left shoulder blade. It's kind of painful in/under the boob as well a bit now and then.

Any ideas anyone please?

Get an ultrasound for gallstones.
This sounds like referred pain.
