Dear Anon,

There are many causes for shoulder pain. i advise you to look at my website : adn specifically at the section "shoulder pain" . Try to fit in one of the conditions mentioned there to your symptoms. One of the conditions which typically affects young girls your age is the Thoracic outlet syndrome - look at that section as well and see if it sounds familiar
