I would like to ask a few more questions:

  1. Which shoulder is affected?
  2. Over the past 2 weeks, has the pain been present all the time or just occasionally?
  3. Has the pain been getting worse, or has it stayed at the same level?
  4. Have you tried anything for the pain (heat, ice, medications)?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
