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

Lung problems such as pneumonia, pleurisy can do the same, although less common. ...Read more

Not related: I assume you are using your inhaler for a pulmonary (lung) problem. Lung disease does not cause shoulder and/or neck pain so I can say with a fair amount of certainty the two conditions are unrelated. For your neck/shoulder pain, see a pain medicine specialist who can not only tell you what is wrong but make you better as well. Good luck. ...Read more

Still severe right shoulder pain. What do I do?

Complex Joint: The shoulder is a complex joint, & many conditions/ injuries (rotator cuff injury, bursitits, tendonitis, labral pathology, etc) can cause pain.
