In brief: Shoulder pain

You're describing features of decreased range of motion with swelling and pain.
All in one joint. I am not sure if this problem is gradual or sudden and whether ther is a history of trauma. However, it seems that she has an inflammatory process that could be affecting the shoulder joint or adjacent tendons and ligaments. Would need more history, x rays, and good exam.
