I think it may be due to FROZEN shoulder.
Frozen shoulder is a painful condition that affects the range of movement of the shoulders due to stiffness. The condition can make the shoulders partially or completely immovable.
The exact cause of the condition is still unknown. However, it is thought that certain situations make the tissues in the shoulder joint susceptible to damage and develop into scar tissues. The shoulder joint slowly starts deteriorating over a period of time, limiting the movement of the shoulder.
An X-ray is recommended in case you’re not able to move your shoulder, to rule out arthritis. MRI scans may be needed to detect inflammation and formation of scar tissue
Frozen shoulder can be cured completely. There are so many treatment options like surgery, medication and physiotherapy available now-a-days and these options vary depending on the condition and symptoms of the patient
Recovery of frozen shoulder is a gradual process, so you need to patient while undergoing treatment, especially physiotherapy. Your physiotherapist will teach you a few exercises depending on the mobility of your shoulder joint.
Thank you
