Brief Answer:
Did you get any trauma?

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for this query.

I have reviewed this information fully and it is suggestive of a possible problem with the scapula. However, that will not make sense unless you have at least had some form of recent trauma. If that is correct, please let me know.

Please, kindly report if you have had any recent or past trauma with this right shoulder. I Wish you well.
