Complex Joint: The shoulder is a complex joint, & many conditions/ injuries (rotator cuff injury, bursitits, tendonitis, labral pathology, etc).Can cause pain/ weakness. Some injuries of the soulder occur due to acute injury and some are from overuse. Ii suggest you see an orthopedist for a complete exam. http://drmarkgalland.com/category/shoulder/.

May be more...: The problem is a musculoskeletal issue but not a strain. If you have had any trauma to your clavicle, you may have a subluxed (mildly displaced) clavicle which leads to radiating pain in those specific areas. An xray might help demonstrate pathology. If you have no contra-indications, i would recommend scheduled nsaid's also to help with any inflammation that may be limiting recovery.
