weakness in shoulders

For the past 4 or 5 weeks my shoulders (yes, both of them) have been noticeable weaker than they previously were.  I work 3-4 times a week and since about 5 weeks ago any exercise that involves my shoulders (bench press, shoulder press, pushups, etc.), I can't do the same amount of weight I could then.  I can only do substantially less weight since that time.  The weakness is also present when I do simple things like brush my teeth or when eating with utensils.  My shoulders feel like they're are very fatigued when I do things like that, and it is literally difficult to do these things because of the shoulder weakness.  My shoulders are also noticeable less flexible now too, as I now have to stretch them out every morning in order for them to feel okay (something I never had to do before).   I am wondering what the problem may be.  Any advice/suggestions/possible diagnosis would be appreciated.  Thanks.
