Hi Kelly, I woke up about two weeks ago and had exactly what you are feeling...like my left shoulder was dislocated. I still can't turn my arm outwards, if you know what I mean...I have to have help putting my coat on or reaching behind me for something. I can't think of anything I did to cause this...but I can't think anyway. At the same time, I got this butt/hip/thigh/knee combo pain that I can't explain on the right side of my body...sometimes radiating pain down the outside of my leg. I am now limping and favoring my left leg so it too is starting to throb. I have been taking so much Advil that I am probably bleeding internally but I am allergic to narcotics!
I FEEL your pain! (who said that...Clinton??)

I have had that pain but more in the beginning when the fibro first hit. Every morning I would wake up like that- feeling like I hurt my shoulder (and especially the side I slept on the most during the night) and pain in my back. And are you packing or doing anything extra to aggravate your shoulder and back?
Hope it starts to feel better soon for you.
Like Karen, I wander if you maybe slept different or in a different pose. I have had that in my shoulder and neck before and it is so bad that I can't turn my neck all the way. It will sometimes last for 1-2 weeks before I am able to move my neck like it should and I've always blamed it on the way I slept.
Also, sometimes if I sleep "like the dead" as they say and don't move during the night, I feel worse the next morning. More stiff and in pain more than usual. I always took a warm bath and used the heating pad which helped for a little bit, but nothing really seemed to work. It just would go away on it's own. Hope you get to feeling better!
Never regret something that made you smile!
