Pain: Pain could be directly related to shoulder or neck problem. Does touching these areas make things worse? Lung problems, pleurisy, even pulmonary embolus could be a problem. Pericardial symptoms possible especially with lying back making worse. Even a gallbladder or some process under diaphragm could be possible.
