In brief: shoulder injury

You need to go for re-evaluation to see why you are still having so much difficulty.
I cannot give more advice without much more information.

In brief: Waking

Waking up at night indicates that there is a problem that needs to be corrected.
This is unacceptable on a long-term basis. I don't have enough information to give you a comprehensive answer; however the most common shoulder problem creating this kind of situation is rotator cuff tendinopathy including rotator cuff tears. An MRI should be done and correlated with physical findings. I personally use local anesthetic injections to help me define the pathology. If the regular MRI does not help much an mr arthrogram should be performed. Best of luck.
