Bursitis or a
tendon injury (tendinopathy) in the shoulder can cause
pain on the outside or front of the upper arm. Common symptoms include pain,
pinching, and stiffness when you raise your arm. These symptoms are often
brought on by doing repeated overhead movements. Pain from bursitis or a tendon
injury can keep you from moving your shoulder and, over time, can lead to stiffness
and a decreased
range of motion.
