If I sneeze, cough, or laugh it does also hurt the right side of my neck where the neck and shoulder connect.
I can move my shoulder and arm normally and I feel a little pain but the pain doesn't feel like I pulled a muscle or slept wrong, the pain seems to be under the shoulder bone where tissue is.
I have been feeling nausea the past two days so this is a new symptom.
No pain is in my chest at all. My chest is fine.
Ive never injured my shoulder or arm in anyway or had any complications
Hi,Thanks for providing more information.
As per your description,possible differential diagnosis may include Nerve impingement,Cervical spondylosis,Muscle strain,Bursitis.
However as your pain is not improving with Aleve so in my opinion,you should consult your family doctor first for a clinical exam and if required further X-ray.MRI of neck and shoulder should be advised.
Your doctor may advise you physical therapy.
So make an appointment with your doctor rather than wait & watch.

Looking at similar situations, two things have terms have come into concern. Pleurisy and spontaneous Pneumothorax. Do these sound familiar?
Thanks for the follow-up.
Pleurisy is a condition in which the layer covering the lungs, called the pleura, becomes inflamed.The most common symptoms of pleurisy is a sharp chest pain that feels worse with breathing, shortness of breath and a dry cough.Chest pain and sometimes mild breathlessness are the usual predominant presenting features of spontaneous Pneumothorax.
As per your pain in shoulder,neck so chances of these both conditions are less.
You should make an appointment with your doctor for further clinical examination.
