As this is a case of an accident and x-ray suggests it to be normal,there are chances of having any muscular injury(e.g. Supraspinatus muscle,Deltoid muscle),ligamentous injury or a soft tissue injury.But all of these are best visible in MRI only. But such cases can be assessed very well by manual testing of the body part involved by a well competent Orthopedic Physiotherapist.
Next Steps
My suggestion is to go to a physiotherapist(Specialised in Ortho) to get a conservative treatment and it is free from side effects.
Health Tips
1.Dont lie on bed with left side turn(i.e.on painful side)

Dear friend
Sometimes X ray are not sufficient to tell everything.
