Severe pain and swelling in the shoulder, weakness in the arm. Pain while breathing. What is wrong?

I am 30 years old. 2 days ago I had severe pain on my left shoulder, and the following day it was swelling. I feel weakness on my left arm, I couldn't carry heavy things using my left arm. If I breathe deeply I feel the pain on my left upper back. I also feel my body is very week. Its been the third time that happened to me. Please let me know what's wrong with me. Thank you.
