Hi
Thanks for writing to the forum!
This could be due to a muscle pull or a nerve getting trapped or due to shoulder joint problem. Please consult your PCP. Also multivitamins help sometime. A chiropractor too can help.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!

Thanks for your prompt response.  I believe it just could be nerve related.  It first happened when I was yawning and stretching.  It came on quick and intense and lasted for a few seconds after I lowered arm.  Made me a little sick to my stomach even.  But as it eased, I was not bothered again until I tried to repeat motion.  Now just got to figure out what I can do about it.  Thanks again.
