Brief Answer:
Pain that you have described is muscular in nature

Detailed Answer:

The pains that you have described are likely to be due to a muscular pain.

First do not use the muscle and put it to adequate rest.

Some general tips from my side -
- A good massage daily twice a day and then hot fomentation.
- But do hot fomentation after the application of massage, also take anti-inflammatory ibuprofen 400 mg three times a day after meals.
- Regular stretching exercise will be helpful.
- Application of local analgesic gel on the area will relieve the spasm.

I do hope that you have found something helpful and informative and I will be glad to answer any further query.
Take care.

Could be due to tendinitis.

Sorry for late reply.

Popping or clicking shoulder and still painful to move arm away from body could be due to tendinitis. I suggest you to give some rest and avoid doing any activity that increases the pain.
