Nonoperative management: physical therapy, stretching program, NSAIDs, rest, ice, may all help considerably. Arthroscopy to debride a degenerative meniscal tear due to persistent mechanical symptoms may be needed later. ...Read more

It's a nerve problem: Could be (not is, could be) positional nerve or nerve root entrapment somewhere in your neck or shoulder.
