Hi, I'm a 27 year old male I've been lifting weights

Patient : Hi, I'm a 27 year old male. I've been lifting weights since high school. For the past several months, when I perform exesrcise that load heavy weight on the front of my shoulders (i.e. the front squat and the clean), I feel pain in the middle part of my scapula. I stopped performing these exercises for a few months in hopes that rest would alleviate the problem. But, I attempted to perform cleans this past weekend and the pain returned. I plan to visit a doctor soon. In the meantime, do you all have any idea what might be causing this? Thank you,
Symptoms:  Pain in shoulder blade
