Pain advice

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi all

I’m after some advice had pain in my right shoulder for as long as I can remember, about 5 years ago came to a head with a double impingement, after a year of pills and physio the dr finally gave in and sent me for key hole surgery on the right shoulder, after the surgery I took about 4-5 months to recover, used the physio to get my left shoulder back to normal and pain free. 9 months pain free before one day I managed to reaggrivate both shoulders, so back under the knife I went, key hole on left and full open surgery on right. Since the 2nd  round of surgery I’ve been in pain, mainly all round the shoulder, the front mainly in the upper chest, in the back mainly around the shoulder blade, nothing seems to get rid of the pain, tried exercise, diet, pills, strapping. Seems that the more physio I do nothing’s improving , strange thing is I’ve got full movement in both arms with no sharp  pain, can get both arms to the middle of my back with no pain at all, just this stinging burning pain all the time. 

Feels like a pulled/torn  muscle, just been 20 months since the surgery, did all the excecises I was given, seems to have caused more issues than solutions this time! 

Any one had anything like this any advice.

    Sounds like more research is needed on your part.  Doctor/medical assistants, medical records, or other online resources.  Your description which consists mainly of pain and makes mention of double impingement is vague to me.

    Done a fair bit of research. Not sure of all the medical names. 

    But double impingement I had was an impinged tendon on either shoulder

    The pain runs from just under the shoulder joint into my chest and down the inside of my arm.
