In brief: Radiculopathy

The most common cause for a burning pain radiating from the shoulder, down the arm, to the hand is a cervical radiculopathy.
This is usually caused by compression of one of the cervical nerves as they leave the spine. The compression is caused by a herniated or bulging disc or arthritis. See: http://bit.ly/1yPwhcG and http://abt.cm/1CvlgDP

In brief: Consider

You may have intrinsic shoulder joint problem, such as rotator cuff tear, but could also, have cervical radiculopathy or thoracic outlet syndrome.
Start with orthopedic surgery consult.
