What could cause a pain in my right shoulder when I breath in deeply? It feels like I can't breath in all the way and I have a lot of phlegm.

In brief: Pleural or diaphragm

infection, inflammation or irritation.
It may be referred pain from your lung or the plueral sac or you may have fluid in your lung. In any case, go to the ER ASAP for a complete exam
