2. Short, Sharp Pain in Shoulder and Arm

Pain from a rotator cuff injury will be felt in the front and side of the shoulder, not surprisingly. The sensation often intensifies when the individual lifts their arms above their shoulders or up to the side and may be most noticeable during activities such as swimming or playing golf or tennis. Sometimes, the pain will spread from the shoulder to affect the upper arm and possibly the elbow as well.
