Rotator cuff tear?: it is possible you might have a rotator cuff tear of the muscle tendons attached to the humerus, supporting the shoulder. An orthopedist and an MRI of the shoulder would be useful in diagnosing this condition if you have it.

See your doctor: There are several causes for this type of pain, but one of the most important potential causes to consider is the heart. Please make sure you follow up with your doctor.
