Shoulder Pain

Postby wilddove » Wed Sep 29, 2004 12:15 pm

About 2 weeks ago I reached my right arm around to my back and my right shoulder just under the bone hurt really bad. It hasn't stopped hurting since. When I cough, sneeze or even breath deep I get a sharp pain in that area. Can you tell me if I pulled a muscle or even though it sometimes feels like I broke a rib or something.

Hello:
Is there any swelling or bruisingin the affected area? Are you able to raise your arm above your head? It is possible to have dislocated your shoulder. Did you hear a loud pop when you reached around your back? For the pain to have lasted this long warrants a trip to the doctor for an exam.
Regards,
Carolyn
This too, in time, shall pass.
