Several things: Possibilities include muscle or ligament problems, nerve problems (e.g. Inflammationin the brachial plexus) among others. Often people with inflammation of muscle aren't really weak ( just hurts) while those with nerve problems are. Getting a good exam from physiatrist (pm&r doc) or neurologist might be a good idea.
