It depends,,,: It depends on how long you have had this and if it stops you from doing your regular activity. If it has been going on for a long time, it might be a good idea to see a doctor who specializes in joints like an Orthopedist. If it is of a more recent nature, and it is very painful, it might be wise to see a doctor sooner for an exam. Best of luck.

Shoulder pain: If you can tolerate Ibuprofen, take 800 mg with food up to three times per day for a maximum of 5 days.
stretch as tolerated
avoid activities causing pain
see PCP for further evaluation and possible imaging
