I have been dealing with this left shoulder pain for around 4 weeks now, Ever since I was in the hospital for the kidney stone. I was hoping it was from being so tense and it would work it self out. It has actually gotten worse and I haven't found anything to take that will ease it up. I have tried heat and ice and can get it to ease up while I am laying down. If I roll to fast it comes back or if I sit or stand up it returns imediately. It feels a lot like the gas pain after having abdominal surgery. Not so much in the joint, but in the muscles and travels up my neck to the jar and down my arm t my elbow. It starts as a 3 to 5 pain that jumps to a 8 to 9 very fast. I get some slight relief by pulling down on my shoulder with my other arm, but only lasts about
10 seconds though. It isn't a continuous pain, but comes and goes 10 to 20 times a day. Lasting anywhere from about
30 seconds to over an hours in duration. My PCP though it had something to do with being tensed up at the hospital and tried and adjustment that hasn't worked. I see him again tomorrow for a 2 week follow up and will ask him about
Guess I am asking if anyone else has had this and if so is there anything to get rid of it? I've tried to do extra walking thinking somehow gas is still trapped from the May surgery, but that hasn't helped. The pain meds I have for the nerve damage on my right side doesn't touch it either, I have tried Aleve to no avail. Unfortunately I have to watch how much of those I take do to the /GERD I have. If anyone has any ideas no matter how off the wall I am listening! After 4 to 5 weeks of this straight I have to figure something out. It is starting to take a huge toll on the family life. I feel good one minute and then as we start to leave to do a family thing it comes back. Nothing more frustrating to a 14 y/o daughter who was looking forward to doing some bow shooting or fishing with her old man and having to cancel. I have made myself cry more in the last 2 months than I can remember crying in the last 20 years over this, I hate to dissapint my family so much. There is noting worse that I can do than dissappoint them.
Well I will get of my soap box now and I thank you for letting me vent some. I do feel better mentally and now to find answers physically.
Take care my friends,
