Hi,
You have not mentioned your age.
If you are elderly then there might be having possibility of cervical spondilitis or peri-arthereritis of shoulder joint.
Go for x-ray cervical region and left shoulder joint.
Consult orthopedic surgeon and get examined.
Physiotherapy and short way diathermy will help a lot.
Ok and take care.
