In brief: See PCP first

Start with your primary care physician.
However, if it is sudden and associated with any chest discomfort, shortness of breath, or nausea, seek immediate evaluate at an emergency room.

In brief: Specialist

For chronic (longer than three months) see an osteopath or physiatrist.
They can provide a hand-on evaluation that is necessary to diagnose. Never have operation without second opinion. In my limited experience, shoilder operations are notorious for less than dramatic healing benefits.
