Maybe: This one is hard to say without examining your shoulder as it can be hard to distinguish pain arising from shoulder conditions such as impingement or rotator cuff tendonitis from neck conditions such as bulging disc. Need to be examined to truly discern where the problem is from. Xrays can be normal in either condition.
