Has the doctor provided you with a specific diagnosis that can be determined to be the source of your pain symptoms?  What diagnostic tests have been done so far?
It is very difficult to assess your symptoms with the information given.
Shoulder pain can be related to disc problems in the cervical spine or any number of related conditions.
Post again with any results and we will try and assist you further.

thank you very much.
till now no diagnostic tests have been done.the doctors themselves told me that they are not important,though i feel like some tests should have been done.i'll surely do some blood tests in due course and let you know.
In fact the shoulders pain become more intense when i am at rest,for instance at night.i've taken many antibiotics,yet nothing....

You should get x-rays of your cervical spine done,  I have a feeling that your shoulder pain may be related to disc degeneration in your neck.  If there are changes noted on
x-ray, it might be necessary to get an MRI.
Pain that is persistent and localized to the shoulder blade and upper back is generally related to abnormalities of the cervical spine,
Keep me posted ---
