Likely you have injury to shoulder. You may need imaging. See your doctor

You need to see your doctor to find out what is going on with your shoulder. Do you remember injuring it? Is there any numbness/tingling? There are many possibilities so your doctor needs to examine it-you may need some diagnostic testing, like an x-ray, depending on what the physical exam shows. So, see your doctor ASAP to get diagnosed and treated. You don’t want it to get any worse!! Good luck!
