Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have severe collarbone pain. Well there can be many reasons for symptoms you mention in query like fracture or injury , acromio-clavicular ligament tear or wrong movement of arm or shoulder . I would suggest you to take proper rest and do not move arm or shoulder much , apply warm compresses and take ibuprofen or acetaminophen for pain . If condition doesn't get well then consult orthopedic surgeon for proper examination . Doctor may order CT scan or physical examination . Doctor may prescribe muscle relaxant , anti inflammatory or recommend physical therapy . Physical therapy will help alot . Doctor may also immobilize your joint for some days .

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
