Shoulder pain

Patient

Q: I hurt my shoulder a few years ago and couldn't use it for a few weeks and eventually the pain went away since I hurt it I can't really lift heavy things without pain or let my arm hang I have to keep it in my pocket so it's not pulling on my shoulder so I won't be in pain even when sitting at a computer it hurts I also can't lean on my arm either without it hurting badly and i cant rest my arm behind my head without pain after a few minutes all issues with pain usually takes about 15 minutes then i have to adjust whatever im doing I have full motion for the most part I'm thinking of finally going to the hospital cause I'm graduating college in a few months I just don't have insurance which has prevented me from getting my shoulder looked at what could be wrong with my shoulder?
