See below: The possibilities are likely a primary problem with the shoulder itself or perhaps a radiating pain from the neck which can be caused by discs, pinched nerves or arthritis in the joints of the neck. If it generally is worse when you raise your arm, it is probably the shoulder, but only a good physical examination by a musculoskeletal doctor (orthopedist or physiatrist) should answer the question.

I was woken up with sudden severe right shoulder pain that only lasted about a minute?

I was woken up with sudden severe right shoulder pain that only lasted about a minute?

Should be ok: Sorry to hear about the shoulder pain. If this is a one time occurrence it might have something as simple as sleeping on your right shoulder and stressing the joint for a short time. I sometimes wake up with my arm feeling numb because I slept on it too long and cut off the blood supply, but it gets better instantly when I wake up and allow blood to go back to the arm. If this continues see a doc. Read more
