Outside-Upper Arm Pain

For the past few years, I have noticed pain in my left upper arm (on the outside, just below the shoulder), when I would extend my arm backward to put on a jacket or shirt.  In the past two or three months, the pain has gotten worse and happens whenever I take my arm backward.  There is no pain when I extend my arm over my head, or when I lift something.  I can do pushups and curls with no pain.  I can also lay on my back and extend my arm to the side or straight back and then lift a moderate weight straight up using only my shoulder.  Is this a rotator cuff situation or pinched nerve?
