In brief: No

Generally a shoulder dislocation affects only the shoulder. If you are having other pains down the arm, you may have stretched some nerves during the dislocation.
This can cause spasms and swelling.

In brief: Yes

It is common after an acute shoulder dislocation to have swelling and muscle spasms.
Persistent swelling or muscle spasms need to be evaluated.
