In brief: Nerve irritation
Something is irritating a nerve in your arm. Could be a pinched nerve in your neck or inflamation of a nerve, such as can occur with a virus.
Either way, you'll be ok, though you might want to see a neurologist to nip this in the bud.

In brief: Cervical spine
I would let your primary care physician know.
It may be an intrinsic shoulder issue or a manifestation of arthritis in your cervical spine. An imaging study may be warranted.
