Pain in arm doing pull ups?

I do pull-ups once every 3 days. I can do 40 pull ups, to give you an idea of how I work them, not bragging purposes. The last time I did pull-ups I had pain on the outer side of my arm near the lower deltoid / tricep. However, I was not weakened in my ability to do pull ups. I am not sure if it is a connective tissue issue, or a muscle tear or strain. I have an appointment in a week, but am not sure if I should take a break or not. Any Feedback from a registered nurse or a real ***** would be great.

    Might be a rotator cuff issue.  Be careful with that shoulder.
