Sudden Severe Right Shoulder Pain
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

The shoulder is a complex joint, & many conditions/ injuries (rotator cuff injury, bursitits, tendonitis, labral pathology, etc) can cause pain. Some injuries of the soulder occur due to acute injury and some are from overuse. Shoulder pain can also come from your neck... I suggest you see an orthopedist for a complete exam.

Therefore, anything that irritates the diaphragm, such as gallbladder or liver problems, can be "referred" to the shoulder.

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