A few years ago, I hurt my shoulder while lifting weights. The pain wasn't that severe, and it eventually subsided. Occasionally when I'd exercise I'd have some discomfort. Recently I've started swimming a few times a week. Now I have constant discomfort in the lower part of my shoulder blade and occasional popping near the shoulder itself (where the arm connects to the chest)
I've done a little digging and it may require therapy or surgery, neither of which I can afford.

What is the likely problem?
What can I do about it?

Shoulder injuries are the most common sports injuries. Here is what you must do.

Rest your arm until the pain subsides completely (do stuff with other arm, everything, even opening doors). Do not swim or do any sports at all in the meantime. Should take a few weeks (2-4), be patient. Massage with ice entire shoulder area (shoulder, blade, area in front about the same size and shape as the blade) three times a day for ten minutes. Wrap in something warm afterwards for a while. In the last week or two, do arm stretching exercises.

In the future, never ever work out / do sports before doing warming up exercises first, and never ever finish working out / do sports without doing stretching out exercises after!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Without skipping steps. Without rushing them. I cannot emphasize enough how important they are for keeping you from injuring yourself with sport.

This is important stuff. Follow it to the T, or you risk to render yourself being unable to do much more mundane things than swim for the rest of your life.

You can try to put a hot/warm bag on the hurting area. The heat will "soften up" your muscles which can heal small defects in the tissue for instance lightly knotted tissue.
It's a cheap solution, else try get a friend or family member to massage you but remember they should never massage on your bones.
