Shoulder pain, prominent on lying, lifting the arm. Taken painkillers. Was put up with a sling for broken collar bone that kept shoulders back. Remedy?

I broke my collarbone when I was about 4 years old. And I ended up breaking it again a year later, and I was put in a sling, and a figure 8 sling that kept my shoulders back. Now I am 17 and have been experiencing pain in the shoulder that I broke twice. It usually hurts if I lay on it, or if I lift my arm out to the side or straight in front of me. Usually I ignore it but sometimes it hurts so bad, that I have to take pain killers..

Orthopaedic Surgeon, Joint Replacement 's  Response
I do not think this is related to your childhood clavicle bone fracture. Rather I think it is because of some bursitis or pinch nerve in shoulder. I would suggest you to get MRI of shoulder and it will confirm the diagnosis. If any such injury is present I would recommend you to show it to orthopedic surgeon.
