Your symptoms could be related to a ruptured ligament. For this reason, I recommend consulting with your orthopedist and performing an X-ray study of the shoulder joint. Inflammation tests (complete blood count, PCR, ESR) should be checked too.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
