there can be several different reasons for this pain like bad sleeping posture, unnoticed injury, arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis etc. Definitely you can take Tab Ibuprofen thrice daily along with local application of some pain killer Gel like ibuprofen gel. You should also avoid sleeping in a posture that aggravate the pain. Taking pain killers for long can cause their own related problems. I think you should atleast visit your GP initially to have an examination and basic investigations like blood work up and xrays, they might help otherwise you may need orthopedic or rheumatologist consultation(as per doctors advise) because shoulder is a complex structure and may need an MRI to diagnose but please visit GP atleast to get some direction.
I hope this helps you.
