Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
It is very difficult to say what it is without examining. If you cannot move your shoulder then the problem lies there. This pain can travel down the arm. Alternatively it can be an elbow or a wrist joint problem causing backward pain. Conditions causing these type of pains are bursitis, injury to ligaments of joints, infection, nerve compression, inflammation or infection of veins, fractures and tendon injuries. Common conditions causing this are rotator cuff injury, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome etc. Do consult your doctor and get this examined. Take care!
