A-C Joint? : If a young person were to have shoulder pain with pain lying on shoulder at night & weakness with lifting & a "popping" sound; then consideration might be for A-C, acromioclavicular, separation. Has there been a traumatic injury or fall onto shoulder? Skateboarding? See an Osteopath or Physiatrist. A-C joint X-ray films standing upright with & without weights might be needed; as well as an MRI.
