Shoulder pain…?

February 25th, 2014

Question by UndomesticGoddess: Shoulder discomfort…?

My right shoulder is genuinely sore, especially when I am moving my proper arm. My fingers in this arm occassionaly come to feel tingly (right after making use of my arm to publish for awhile). I really feel as however the medial, inferior element of my scapula is bruised but I can see no obvious bruising. It also is a bit uncomfortable when I breathe in deeply. Any notion what this could be? Just standard bruising?

    Perhaps you can jog your memory to when did the pain start, and what did you do before the pain started? If your pain is that bad, see your Dr!

    I can relate to the pain and grief for several days with a sore shoulder/ neck. It was due not lying down properly and may have stretched or had a muscle pull, I’ll never forget the incruciating and throbbing pain within 3 hours after getting up. I just have to avoid strenous activity and no lifting heavy things until the pain is gone…

    Good Luck, my friend!

    There are several possibilities as to what might be causing your pain. Unfortunately, your description of your symptoms is lacking some critical information used to come up with a diagnosis … and anyone telling you otherwise is misinformed. My adivce is that you need a good doctor or physical therapist to take a look at your shoulder and tell you what is going on with it. Good luck!

    I have nerve damage to my arm which results in what you feel. But also could just be bruising! If you use that arm alot for something such as bowling, tennis, etc.. you coulc hae a ligiment issue!

    Hi Goddess
    From my experience of these things it sounds more likely that your problems are coming from the neck and not the shoulder.

    Pain in the shoulder blade (scapula) area is nearly always from the neck and is usually described as “referred pain”.
    Tingling in the fingers are a classic sign of a neck problem and are virtually never caused by a shoulder issue.

    It’s hard to make a proper diagnosis just from reading your symptoms but on balance, I think that the neck is likely to be the issue here.

    It will be worth your while going to see an osteopath or a physiotherapist who should be able to help you with it.

    Hope this helps
