About two months ago I fell on my left shoulder with my arm outstretched. I didn't think I fell hard, but I'm now 49 and things seem to break easier.
It's now been two months and the shoulder pain seems as strong as it was right after it happened. My shoulder doesn't seem to be healing. I have pain in the shoulder sometimes when I sleep and it almost seems like it's worse when I wake up in the morning.
I can raise my arm out in front and over my head without pain. If I bend my arm at the elbow (like a chicken wing) and then raise my arm out, it hurts quite a bit. If my arm is hanging at my side and I put resistance on it and try to lift my arm, it hurts a lot. If I hold my arm straight out to the side and downward pressure is put on it, I can hold it pretty steady without pain. But, if hanging at my side straight down and I try to lift my arm with downward pressure on it, it hurts quite a bit.
It's just weird that it's not feeling better after two months. It doesn't help that I'm mostly left handed and continue to use it quite a bit. Any thoughts? Also, any advice on rehab?
