I brought side sleeper pillow and my neck and shoulder pain has gotten worst. I can't raise my arm or lower it with feeling pain.
Shoulder pain: There are many possible causes of neck and shoulder pain including pinched nerve and rotator cuff injury.

Muscle/tendon injury: Without a history of a specific injury, your pain could be coming from the fact that you strained the muscles (deltoid or rotator cuff) around the shoulder or sprained the ligaments and joint that join the end of your collar bone (clavicle) to the shoulder blade (acromion portion of the scapula). You should seek a thorough orthopaedic surgeon evaluation if the pain persists past a week. ...Read more

Prob not: As an orthopedic surgeon who treats many patients w/ shoulder instability I would say there is no proven benefit to wearing compression shirts for instability.

What does it mean when shoulder pain worsens when pulling the arm back from an outstretched position?
Varies : There are a number of potential causes. If it is around your shoulder blade, then it usually means it is coming from the retractors of your shoulder blade, such as the rhomboids.

Need evaluation. : Not only would we need more information about whats going on with your shoulder, but I think it would be wise if you got a formal physical examination locally with an orthopedist. Is this new, or has it been this way for a while? Was there any trauma involved? Depending on answers to these questions, you might at least need an x-ray if not an MRI. ...Read more
