shoulder pain

Hi - So I climbed for a year and a half, got up to leading some 10ds and 11as, and then this winter started using a hangboard for hangs, pullups, and working towards front levers.

I've never once had any pain while climbing or pulling down, but I get some pain when I raise my arm out to the side above shoudler level with my palm turned upwards, and also get some pain with internal rotation exercises. A physical therapist and a orthopedic guy both thought I had not real injuries of any kind.

Do I need to wait until that pain is completely gone to climb? Or should I try to ease back into it after a week or two?

I've already taken a week and a half with no climbing related activity, and it sucks. The pain described above is not that bad but does not seem to be getting better fast, if at all.

I thought it was no big deal and kept climbing for weeks at first, until one day after a strenuous session, I got a very, very sharp pain in my shoulder while resting after a roof-like boulder problem and then could not raise my arm over my head for a day or a few days.

Thanks,
