In brief: Needs further eval.

This symptom is caused by a problem with the tendons in the shoulder called the rotator cuff.
Sometimes it is just inflammation (tendinitis) but often there is a calcium deposit, bursitis, or an impingement of the bones. Her doctor can sort this out.

In brief: I agree

This does sound like the below answer. Also, have your physician evaluate the status of her labrum, or the "gristle" of the joint.
Best of luck!
