AC joint injury: Sounds like you have injured your acromioclavicular joint, the joint where the collarbone meets the shoulder bone. If it has been 6 months and you still have pain, you should see an orthopedic surgeon and have x-rays done and have your shoulder examined. It is possible you have a fracture that goes into the ac joint or a ligament injury that needs surgical treatment.

See your doctor: Ice will help keep the swelling and pain down. The important question is what is wrong with your shoulder. If the pain does not go away in a week or so, see your doctor to get examined and possibly have tests to determine what was damaged. Hope this helps!
