possibly over strain by lifting weights at this age at the hot fomentation and apply volini gel to shoulder and take aleve tabs. do only mild rotatory and raising shoulder as far as you can do without pain, no weights or vigorous movement.Try this for a week and consult orthopedic doctor if need be, for MRI shoulders, if required
