i have been suffering over 12 years now with constant shoulder pain. i slipped and fell over 12 years ago. i had pain in around the back of my shoudler i saw my gp who said it was muscular and to keep using my arm or it would sieze up. it really hurt i used to sit with hot water bottle on it and cry. i saw a diff gp who said it was muscular and to keep using my arm. this went on for months, i saw a third doctor for another opinion who said they agreed with the other two doctors that my pain was muscular! FIVE MONTHS LATER i couldnt stand the pain and went to hospital emergency dept they took an xray and showed me the xray and told me i had FRACTURED MY CLAVICAL (colorbone)!!!! i then went back to my gp wearing a sling who said he was sorry he didnt examine me properly when i first saw him with this pain! i was prescribed painkillers and referred to physio! when i saw the phsyio they told me it wasnt broken???? they hadnt even seen my xray though!!!! at my second appointment i was told they couldbt work on my shoulder because it was broken??? they referred me to acupuncture which a actually took the pain away!! BUT after a couple weeks the pain came back again! i was referrd to phsyio again and had to do exercises BUT nothing helped because the exercises were too painful to even do!!! i have been stuck with pain now for over 12 years! i cannot put my arm above my head, behind my back, move my arm outwards or even turn my hand palm up!???? it takes ages to get dressed and i get out of breath showering because it exerts me takes all my energy just to do such a simple thing!!! it even hurts in the bone in my elbow (the part where you would get blood taken) that small bone there hurts too!! WHAT ON EARTH IS THIS PAIN??? if one doctor at hospital tells you your colorbone is broken yet all others tell you it its not broken BUT the doctor who had my xray to look at TOLD me it was BROKEN???? who do i believe and how do i get OUT OF THIS PAIN!!???????
