In brief: Shoulder injury

There are several possible causes of your shoulder problem. It can be a rotator cuff problem, or if you are under 20, then it can be some instabiility of your shoulder. If you fell directly on your shoulder, it can be a shoulder separation.
You should see an orthopedist if the problem continues.
