I fell about
three weeks ago and it was a hard fall on cement outdoors. It was a jolt to my body. I hurt everything on the right side of my body and mainly my shoulder. I've had 4 x-rays and an MRI and I've had two prescript
ions for inflammation and a muscle relaxant. No broken bone or rotator cuff tear or muscle tear.
Now I'm going to physical therapy for the weakness in my right arm and strengthen my muscle, etc. I am not sure what is going on--this morning I woke up, showered and was shampooing my hair and I felt a sharp pain in my back/near or in my right shoulder blade. I was in tears. No amount of pain medication or muscle relaxer can resolve the pain. I came home and laid on an ice pack--I feel somewhat better but I am puzzled why I am having so much pain. An FYI, I'm 53 and about
30 lbs overweight.
I sit at work and type at a computer all day and that is excruciating. I squirm, stretch and move around in my chair. My diagnosis is muscle strain. Could it be something else? I was perusing websites and I wonder if I cracked a rib but I believe they may have noticed that in the MRI. Maybe it's just spasms and then I was wondering if I am having a heart attack. Any answers?
I'm so frustrated by the constant pain. Thank you, all!
