Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

How long you have such pain?

This is likely due to the bicipital tendinitis.

The inflammation of the biceps tendon at its attachment to shoulder can cause these symptoms.

Rest, ice, Ibuprofen 600 mg 3 times daily with food for 7-10 days will help to recover reasonably.

Steroid injection in the shoulder also can be considered for faster recovery.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
