I woke up with a stiff neck and shoulder muscle. My worry is why it was swollen up? Is that normal??

Shoulder pain: Clearly this is not "normal". You have injured yourself somehow. Perhaps you were lifting something that was too heavy for you ar you repeatedly exerted yourself to 100% with the shoulder and have and overuse problem. Ice it 20 minutes 4xday, take some anti-inflammatory (ibuprofen 600mg 4x day) and rest it. If its not better in a week OR it gets worse (Red/hot/more painful) see a doc.

I dislocated my shoulder and the muscle deteriorated and now I don't have a muscle in my left shoulder. Is it possible to get my shoulder muscle back?

Muscle wasting: I am concerned that you may have had a nerve injury secondary to your dislocation. This is usually the cause of posttraumatic muscle deterioration. You will need to have a nerve study (emg/ncs) to determine your nerve function then a decision can be made about the future health of your muscle.
