swelling, burning in armpit shoulder area

Anyone have any experience with this type of situation...pain in both shoulders, moreso in one of them,
sometimes accompanying burning sensations down the arms, and a noticeable swelling in the underarm
area of one...the situation was seemingly a gradual one, with pain growing worse over a month or two...
no injuries, and no real range of motion problems...suggested avenues of investigation would be appreciated,
autoimmune disease has been long present but no tests have shown any problems there out of the ordinary.

previous possible andenopathy in the chest but it disappeared, thickened bladder wall,
but that is about two years ago, just burning and pain, could be polymyositis but i'm uncertain with the swelling in the underarm.
