Ever since Monday I have been getting these shooting pains by my clavicle bone on the left side. The pain isn't to painful, more annoying then anything.

Where exactly is the pain--at one end of the clavicle or more in the center? How long does the pain last?
The pain is near my left shoulder. The pain dosen't last long maybe 30 seconds at the most. And the pain is not unbearable more of a naggy annoying pain.
Does it hurt to move the shoulder? Any tenderness in the area?
Yes the hurt does move to the shoulder. Yes the area does seem very tender.
OK--sounds like some inflammation of the acromioclavicular tedon that secures the clavicle to the part of the shoulder blade that forms the anterior portion of the shoulder or you may have a touch of bursitis of the shoulder itself. Ibuproven, topical capsaicin cream, and heat will usually take care of this but if not have a doctor take a look and see if a cortisone injection is needed.
