This can often improve on it's own with rest and anti-inflammatories, but if your pain lasts greater than one week or gets worse see your physician. ...Read more

I experience pain at the joint of neck and shoulder whenever I lift weight (even 200gm), wear suit jacket, and mainly when I bend to down-right.

PleaseNoCalisthenics: 200 grams? That's only about 7 pounds! Whatever you have is pretty darned sensitive. It's really restricting your right to living free in this Democratic Republic! I suggest you see someone about it so that they can examine what's going on. Without knowing more about you and your circumstances that's the best advice I think I can give. Until then, wear a T-shirt and don't bend down to the right. ...Read more

MRI w/without Gad: Depending on how high or low on your shoulder blade, this area localizes to either the C4 or t2 nerve roots. An entrapped neurofibroma at one of these levels may be producing the burning pain. An MRI of the cervical spine extended to the high cervical region with and without gadolinium should show any abnormalities in these regions. You would then need to decide surgery or pain management. ...Read more

The vertebrae in the cervical portion of your spine is a confounding variable; however, going to the er under the circumstances would not be a bad call.
