Pain underneath my right shoulder, pain while breathing deeply. Why?

Pain underneath my right shoulder, pain while breathing deeply. Why?

Referred Pain?: The same nerves that innervate the diaphragm go to the shoulder, as well. Therefore, anything that irritates the diaphragm, such as gallbladder or liver problems, can be "referred" to the shoulder. If the only symptom is shoulder pain (ie, no abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, etc), I would search elsewhere. Lung problems such as pneumonia, pleurisy can do the same, although less common. ...Read more

Why dose my right shoulder close to my neck hurt when I breath in hard?

Muscle strain/spasm: As you inhale deeply, you expand your chest wall...And doing so, you move shoulder blades up and out, thus pulling on the muscles attaching to the upper and inner areas of the shoulder blade. If these muscles are strained somehow (common for people working on computer keyboards for long periods), they can be sore when you breath in deeply.
