I have had shoulder pain the last three days. Today

I have had shoulder pain the last three days. Today it is significantly worse in my left arm. I massaged it and it made it worse. It is a dull ache with sharp pains as well. It is now radiating down my arm, into my neck, chest and back. My elbow is starting to ache as well. The pain in my right shoulder is almost gone now. Ibuprofen does not help (I’ve taken 2000mg today). Is it safe to wait a couple days to get it looked at with the symptoms I am having? What techniques can I try to lessen my pain?
