Default Shoulder pain question

Before I head to the doc and spend a ton a money, I want yall's opinion..

Backstory - never had any shoulder issues at all. About a month ago, I got into a pretty bad fight at work. After it and for a day or two, I didn't realize anything wrong.

Then one day, I lift my right arm and have the slightest of a pain, deep in the socket. It doesn't hurt all the time, just when I lift my arm to the front and side. I can't get my arm half way to shoulder height and it starts hurting. When i say "hurt" it doesnt mean extreme.. just a twinge of something isnt right.

My boy tossed me a football the other day and I went to throw it back and wow.. that was not a fun experience.

I can fight through most of it, ie - still lifting weights, but i definitely know its there.

What's yall's tbh diagnosis?

Magnesium oil worked wonders on a shoulder injury/pain I had for years. Bought it at Whole Foods. Apply before bedtime.

Prolly labrum or rotator cuff. Go get an MRI. If it's one of these it won't fix itself

Sounds like the cuff to me. Do you feel anything lower down your arm? Halfway between the shoulder & elbow.

You have a partial tear if supersponatus (so?)... (rotator cuff)

You ain’t a star fish so it won’t grow back but you can do rehabilitation and build supporting muscles (it’s slow and it sucks, took me about 6 weeks). And you will have use but not full strength obviously

It’s a bandaid until the inevitable... a rebuild kit is in our future

I have had a torn rotator cuff, and what you describe is what my was like,,, (I also tore mine in a fight, and yes I won) DO NOT let the insurance company ( if you have it) make you waste time and money on therapy if it is a torn cuff,,, recovery after the surgery is no fun at all but is the only thing that will fix the tear,,, and it will come back or just continue to get worse ,,,,,, the younger you are at surgery the faster you will recover,,, so don't put it off a few years thinking it will be ok.....

I had the same pain about 2 months ago and went to the doc and he told me since I still had most of my range of movement and pain was tolerable that it was most likely a slight tear in cuff. I was told to let it rest for a few months and see how it gets. I shot my bows the other night for the first time and the pain wasn't there so I think it is getting better but I'm not going to over do it for awhile.

Post hoc ergo propter hoc. :-)

You have impingement demonstrated by symptomatology when you raise your arm. There are numerous causes and given that you didn't notice anything for several days following the fight, the symptoms may not even be attributable to the fight. If symptoms continue you may want to see a doctor, but many here will tell you to rub some diatomaceous earth on it and get back out there and fight again! :-)

Sounds exactly like the issues I had with a labrum tear. The surgery is not bad but the physical therapy took a while after. For me, it took going to too surgeons to get the right diagnosis after the MRI. One said surgery would not help and the other said surgery was the only option. I had dealt with it for so long I just took the plunge and the surgery fixed up all the pain. The surgeon said my shoulder was worse than the MRI and exam let on, I ended up with several anchors, etc.

My MRI was done without contrast and the DR. indicated the diagnoses could have been easier if it had been done with contrast. Keep that in mind if a DR orders an MRI, you may want to ask them what they are ordering. I have had another MRI with contrast, my brain for tinnitus/slight hearing loss, and it seems they get both scans done at one time. Basically, contrast is introduced halfway through the scan.

Make sure you go into work and file from the injury if you havenít. Also I would t goto an ortho. Goto one that just does shoulders. Go to your ER and ask some of the nurses you know who the best shoulder guy is. I have 4 anchors in my shoulder and I canít even notice I ever had it done

I had similar pain. I swore it had to be rotator cuff......
Turns out I attempted to dislocate my shoulder when I fell in Colorado last year. They put me on some strong anti-inflammatory and PT.

Does it hurt if you raise your arm up straight out in front of you vs straight out to the side. it could be a bone spur. I had that. Outpatient surgery to remove the slur and a couple of weeks of rehab. Good to go.

If you had torn a labrum or rotator cuff in a fight it would have hurt right then. You likely strained a muscle that supports your shoulder joint and now the joint is not functioning as normal. More than likely the more you move it the worse itís going to get until the muscle are back at full function.

I would highly recommend you seek out someone who specializes in testing all of the musculature in your area before you go do anything else thatís likely to complicate matters.

If youíd like a referral Iíd be glad to point you to someone in the Dallas area.

Had something similar and went to iron man clinic in Woodlands and thought for sure I was in for surgery. Shot of cortisone and 800 mg of ibuprofen for a week and I have been good since.

It could be a couple different things, I bet they start you off with an ibuprofen regimen for a week or two to reduce the inflammation. Then they will go to a cortizone shot and if all that fails the nastiness of a shoulder surgery.

I am putting of the inevitable surgery on my shoulders. I have seen the terribly long recovery process for that surgery. I always hope to get a couple more years.

Doing pt exercises to build supporting muscles has helped me a great deal. I'll try to find the link that I follow to help with mine.
