Kara, I just wanted to say I know that feeling..I experienced a lot of "popping" and "catching" in my left shoulder for about 3-4 months before I finally went to the Ortho Dr. (My GP told me it was just in my head) well 3 1/2 weeks a go I had surgery for 3 bone spurs and a ton of arthritis cleaned out. He is holding of on the total shoulder replacement as I am having some surgery tomarrow for something else. I know that when I slept it would bother me a lot, like catching or I could not reach around behind my back with out severe pain or a popping and catching there too. I am Not a Dr., but maybe you have an impingement like I had. You might have to see a dr sooner or later...But my sister had a dislocated shoulder and that pain was totally unbearable, (like Skeye said) you would have gone to the ER by now I think. can you go to the County Hospital. They help you get medicaid for emergencys. I was told to put hot packs and then cold packs on mine for the inflammation..but...didn't help, this arthritis and degenerative stuff stinks, doesn't it?
GOOD LUCK hon,
Pamela, same thing to you..good luck..my shoulder feels better now after the surgery!
