Thank you for the information,
The pain can be due to a few possible causes.
There can be muscle pull or strain.
Tendinitis or bursitis or impingement of supraspinatus tendon can cause pain here.
Frozen shoulder, fibromyalgia, pinched nerve in the spine are also probables.
As it has started tonight only, you can observe.
Please avoid the movement which aggravates the pain.
Keep it at rest as much as possible,
Ibuprofen can be continued.
Warm application can be helpful.
I would advise to get an examination by doctor, if it gets severe or you do not get relief from these measures.
X-ray, ultrasound examination or MRI can be taken for diagnosis.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
