In brief: Diaphragmatic irrit.

The shoulder pain described is a referred pain from a left diaphragmatic irritation.
Therefore any thoracic or abdominal pathology that might irritate the left diaphragm will lead to such pain. I advise you get a ct of chest and abdomen and get checked by your physician. Good luck.
