Hello.
Thanks for writing to us.
The pain in the shoulder that you have can be due to shoulder impingement or cervical spondylosis. You need to get an MRI scan done to find out the exact cause of pain. Till then oral muscle relaxants can help.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

Dr. Praveen Tayal . For future query, you can directly approach me through my profile URL http://bit.ly/Dr-Praveen-Tayal
