Hi. How long has this been going on and was any trauma involved?
Have you had any x-rays or MRI's pertaining to this?
The shooting pain has only been for 2 days. I did have a fall about 8 weeks ago where I put my hand down to stop myself I think. The other feeling have been there for quite a while. No I have had no x-rays or MRI scans
OK Yvonne. You need the MRI of the shoulder.
There are a few possibilities here--
Impingement syndrome--a kind of tendonitis of the rotator cuff
A possible labral tear--a tear in the cartilage that makes up part of the socket part of the ball-and-socket shoulder joint.
The MRI would determine which of these is the problem
Let me know if you need any more information please
