This sounds to me like nerve pain - have her evaluated by a physiotherapist to see if there is a nerve pinching? She may also have diabetic neuropathy - for this taking vit B complex and using something like Tryptanol 25 mg at night may help, she will need a prescription.

I had the same pain and it turned out that my whole shoulder had disintegrated. I never had pain in my shoulder just in my upper arm. The x-rays did not show it very clearly, but when I was operated on the dr had to do a complete shoulder reconstruction.
