Tenderness and pain in left arm near armpit, tight muscles around the area. Opinion?

Hi, I have tenderness and pain on the outside, left arm near armpit. It started with just tenderness and is continually worsening. I am now having problems using my left arm to certain degrees. I'm wondering if I have an impingement. The muscles around the area and neck are very tight. When I can loosen my neck up, I have more range of motion.
What's your opinion?

Thanks for writing to us.
The pain in the left arm near the armpit is likely to be due to a muscle sprain or tendonitis. If rest, hot fomentation and mild pain killers do not help then do get an MRI done for diagnosis.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
