Brief Answer:
Can be osteoporosis and low calcium levels.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
The pain above the hip upto the shoulders at your age can be related to osteoporosis and low levels of calcium and vitamin D3. You can start with proper supplements after getting the levels checked. Do start having a diet rich in calcium and you can have mild pain killers meanwhile to control the pain.
I hope this answers your query.

Wishing you good health.
