  4. Absolutely not!!

    He complains of pain in his left shoulder (Mainly upon raising his arem).

    The words inside the parentheses are NOT a sentence. There is no subject, and there is no complete verb.

    Here's what's correct:
    He complains of pain in his left shoulder, mainly upon raising his arm.
