Shoulder pain and tightness, triggers on certain movements, no pain when immobile. What is the cause?

I am a 53 year old woman. I have pain in my left shoulder and in both shoulders there is a catching sensation. The pain in my left shulder happens when I move it in certain directions. I have full movement and no pain at night or when immobile. Could you tell me what you think it might be? I don t remember injuring myself but I do a lot of dancing and I blow dry my long hair and style it...all takes a toll on my shoulders. I am getting fed up with thi s pain and feeling that I can t move proerly because of it thanks Carol

Hi, Carol,
Thanks for query.
It seems that you are having osteoartheritis changes in your left shoulder giving this problem.
Go for physiotherapy of left shoulder regularly so that movement at this joint is maintained,otherwise you may get frozen shoulder in the future.
You may go for x-ray left shoulder for degenerative changes in the joint.
Ok and bye.
