Sudden shoulder pain. No injury. Is it due to rotator cuff subluxation?

I m a 31 years old female who suddenly began having shoulder pain. This pain is very sharp when I move my arm in certain directions. If I am careful I can bring it over my head but if I reach across my chest or suddenly move it even in a dependent position it hurts. It feels better when keep my shoulder still and my elbow close to my body. Ihave a history of playing softball as a pitcher for many years. I do not know of any trauma or recent injury I have had. Wondering if just ice and NSAID would help or if this is more serious like a rotator cuff subluxation? Thank you

Welcome to HCM,
It seems that you have got some laxity of shoulder joint muscles giving rise to this problem.
There is rare possibility of having mild subluxation of shoulder joint.
Consult orthopedic surgeon and get investigated.
With treatment and physiotherapy you will be alright.
Meanwhile you may take NSAID for temporary pain relief.
For time being avoid Gym. or more straneous shoulder exercise.
Ok and bye.
