Achy Sensation

The most common symptom of shoulder pain is the achy and dull sensation around the area. You might have the pain deep in the socket or around the back of the shoulder. In addition, it tends to become achy gradually or be intense in the beginning and subset over time. A possible cause of this condition is the wearing down of the cartilage and tendons in your shoulder. It can also be triggered by a rotator cuff tear or a superior labral tear from posterior to anterior tear. In many cases, achy and deep pain in the shoulder would come from bicep tendonitis or glenohumeral osteoarthritis, which are common conditions in older people. [1]
