Thank you for your question,
I’m Dr. Saha and I’ll try to help you.
There can be a few possibilities.
The pain can come from tendinitis, or bursitis.
Tendinitis or impingement of supraspinatus tendon can cause pain on raising the arm through certain degrees.
Biceps tendinitis can cause pain on lifting the arm.
These can involve the rotator cuff.
Frozen shoulder, pinched nerve in the spine are also probables.
I would advise to get an examination by doctor.
Doctor can then decide about tests after physical examination.
X-ray, ultrasound examination or MRI can be taken for diagnosis.
Initially rest to the joint with antiinflammatory medicines help.
Pain medicines with antiinflammatory activities like ibuprofen, naproxen can be taken if there is no contraindication to them.
Corticosteroid injection, physiotherapy can be needed.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
