Get it evaluated: There can be several causes. Are you generally very flexible? If so, this may be an inherited issue rather than a localized should shoulder. See an orthopedist.

See your doctor: Please see your internist or an orthopedic surgeon. This is not really a sleep disorder. Some people easily dislocate their shoulders and it often can keep happening, so please have it checked out.
