Your post is extremely confusing. I can't tell whether you're asking about your shoulder or back because your post goes back and forth. You make it sound like you're not able to walk because your shoulder is popping out. It doesn't make sense.
At any rate, we can't tell you if you have arthritis or not. It doesn't really matter anyway because knowing the answer to that question isn't going to solve any problems. You need to tackle one problem at a time with your doctor so s/he can plan your treatment options.
