Thanks for your query.
Right shoulder pain radiating to elbow could be due to pinched nerve or tendonits.MRI of affected part might be helpful in diagnosing the condition.I would suggest getting this evaluated by an orthopedician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. You may get the X-ray/MRI of the area affected under his/her guidance.
I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
Take care
