At one time I did tie my shoulder back. It wasn't a very good tie. I didn't know
how to do it.
I will look at pillows. I keep walking around in the pillow departments and then
leaving after deciding I can't afford any pillows. My purchase today was a lighted
raindeer for the front lawn and a pack of Christmas cards Maybe I can't afford not
to have some good pillows.
I sleep on my side and at all times during my sleep I hold my shoulder and kind
of massage it with lotion all night. (No wonder I wake up every two hours!)
I think a sling is good idea too. I once tried to make one with my bra.I cut the straps
and tied them in some creative ways. My elbow went in the cup. It worked fairly
well but kept me housebound.
Ice packs and heat pads for the shoulder! I've never seen such things. I balance
a ho***er bottle on my shoulder as I type this. I hate ice but I know it makes
swelling go down.
I don't think it's subluxating because I never hear a pop or crack ... but I do
feel a terrible pulling away.
Ekkorose: From your discript
ion of Bursitis, I sure hope that's what I have but ...
I kinda doubt it.
We'll see. I have to get an internist because mine is quitting. After that I
believe I will get a referral to an orthopedist.
