Non displaced humeral head fracture

Posted , 3 users are following.

I took a fall Easter weekend, went to ER they did xray showed nothing.. After 5 weeks of arm not in sling etc.. I went to my Dr. and order MRI which showed I had this non displaced humeral head fracture.. Once we knew what it was, they started me on P.T.  Well I can do the things they want me to do.. But I am in constant discomfort and throbbing and sometimes middle of my arm hurts.. I wake up several times a night because I get stiff and it will throb.. Will this ever stop.. I have been in pain for 17 weeks and just about at my witts end.
