Well assuming you dont do the backstroke every day, thats most likely what caused it. You overused some muscles in a different way than they are used to and bingo, they went into spasm.

Or could be a torn, inflamed rotator cuff. If that is the case, it will almost be impossible to turn on the car radio, you wont be able to move your arm that far forward. This really hurts and takes months to years to completely heal.

Everone's description of pain and tolerance is different. Shooting pain to me is like nerve pain, but with nerve pain you also get numbness at times- you did not mention numbness.
