Might be a rotator cuff injury.  It is not uncommon to have pain there as it is easy to injure it.  Symptoms get worse if there is a bigger tear, but many people live with slight injuries that heal enough they can function okay with it.  It makes it easier for it to tear with trauma.  I knew somebody who injured it from sports when he was young, and then had a little trauma with a golf cart surprising him, and it ripped it farther and he had to have surgery.  20 years between the two incidences.
