Pain centered around shoulder blade, sharp pain on extending, crunching sound on moving arms in circles with pain. Cause?

I am having a pain that seems to be centered in my left shoulder in the back under my shoulder blade. it feels like it s in the joint and sometime the weight of my arm alone, feels as thought my arm is going to come out of the socket. When I reach back, for instance, to put on a sweater, I get a sharp intense pain that lasts for a few seconds and then it goes away. When I move my arm in a circle, I feel a crunching sound and at time, my arm will ache down to my elbow . I believe I initially injured myself doing a push up in yoga .

I have studied your case.
It can be rotator cuff injury which may need MRI for confirmation.

Medication like methylcobalamine with muscle relaxant and analgesic will reduce pain, you can take them consulting your treating doctor.
You may consult physiotherapist for further guidance. He may start TENS ,or ultrasound which is helpful in your case.
You may need to take rest for early healing.

Also check your vit B12 and vit D3 in your blood.
