It seems that your shoulder muscles have gone into a spasm

Dr PG (M.D.) :

if your pain has worsened over the last 24 hours despite taking painkillers and doing warm compresses, then you might need to consult your doctor

Dr PG (M.D.) :

taking muscle relaxants along with the normal pain killers should help your pain and stiffness

Dr PG (M.D.) :

also you might need some investigations to rule out possibility of any spinal problemand nerve compression

Whats is an muscle spasm. Is it serious.
Due to any inflammatory process in a joint or the area surrounding the joint the muscles of that area also get affected. Going into spasm is a reaction of the tissue or muscle surrounding the affected area. Spasm is when muscles get inflamed and contract leading to pain and restricted movement. It is not serious and resolves with treatment.
