Nagging Right Shoulder Pain

Hi folks...24 male here, decent health.
The last 48 hours I've developed an incredible and intense pain under my right shoulder blade, that is persistent and nagging. It does not subside at all and at times seems to radiate around to the front of my chest, causing it to be tight. My arms feel a bit weaker than normal, and I was lifting some boxes a few days, so I sort of wrote it off. But the pain is moderate to severe. I am in the middle of battling an eye infection and have had a persistent dry/green sputum cough (not anything severe) for several months as well, but I've written that off to allergies. Is this just a muscle injury, or could this be something else?

There's really no possible way for people on the internet to tell you what this is except to say yes, it's either a muscle injury or something else. Give it a week or two and if it doesn't go away see an orthopedic surgeon.
