Pain between elbow and shoulder. What should i do?

HI... the last few weeks I am experiencing a light pain between my elbow and shoulder . I can not tuck my arm under my pillow as I usually do. In about three minutes it hurts and I sleep on my other side. Now I am experiencing the problem in my left arm as well... when I lay down. When I am standing... there is some when when I outstretch my arm. from elbow to shoulder. When I touch the knob of the shoulder it feels tender.. Richard

Hello and welcome to HCM,

Pain in the region between elbow and shoulder suggests a musculoskeletal problem.
It could be muscular pain or involvement of the joint - shoulder or elbow joint.
Pain and tenderness over the shoulder joint suggests inflammation of the shoulder joint.
A X-ray of the shoulder joint is required to look for any effusion of the shoulder joint, or bursitis.
Consult your orthopedician for clinical examination, relevant of investigations and management.

Thanks and take care
