Need an evaluation: There's more than one thing that can cause this. You could have pleurisy and the upper chest wall. But also shoulder pain can occur from Pleurisy, cardiac issues or even rupture spleen. I'm not making that diagnosis but I am suggesting you get an evaluation and to clarify whether any of these or some other process is involved
