Biceps tendonitis can be a common cause of shoulder pain. In this condition, the biceps tendon and surrounding areas accumulate inflammation, causing pain. It often develops over time, with activities that require repetitive, overhead movements. Other causes of this condition include shoulder muscle weakness, changes in shoulder mobility, impaired posture, a sudden increase in an exercise routine, and age-related body changes.
Symptoms of biceps tendonitis include sharp pain at the front of your shoulder when reaching overhead, behind your back, and across your body. Pain may radiate to your neck or down the front of your arm and may feel worse following activity, at rest, or sleeping at night. You may also experience muscle weakness and a sensation of catching or clicking with movement.
