I have severe pain in my left shoulder that spreads up to my neck

I have severe pain in my left shoulder . The pain spreads up to my neck and the shoulder is swollen and warm to the touch. Also, when i tried to go in for a massage to hopefully relax, it became obvious that my left shoulder is protruding more than my right one. My pain gets to points where I'm immobilized and it gets much worse when I work.
