Hello,

Your symptoms could be suggestive of bursitis or chronic arthritis. I recommend performing a shoulder X-ray study and some blood lab tests (complete blood count, PCR, ESR, vitamin D plasma levels, LDH plasma levels, CEA plasma levels) and a chest X-ray study. You should discuss with your doctor on the above tests.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist
