I have had shoulder pain (right) for about 2 years. I had surgery for a bone spur & rotator cuff repair (very small tear).
Now my other shoulder (left) is in major pain as well as my hip & knee all left side. I feel this pain that shoots down my leg from my buttocks (i think, could be from my hip?).
When I am standing up for a length of time I have to lift my left leg otherwise the pain starts to shoot down my leg.
My shoulders are the worse in the morning or from lying in a position too long.
Everytime I move my shoulders or knee when I have been in a position for a time they pop & crack, it gets painful.

Overall, I am a 27 year old woman. I am 5'8" and weight about 117. I am in good health.
I did not injury my shoulder playing sports, kind of a mystery how I had a tear in the rotator cuff.

Please help. What type of doc should I see?

  • You should see a neurologist to rule out any cervical damage and an Orthopedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine. sometimes you can tear things through repetitive stress or in any car accidents, and sometimes just daily aggravations and poor diets. Make sure you rule out any underlying disease, like brittle bones and menopuase, and check your family history. I don't know what kind of diet you have or if you're pregnant. Be sure you're not pregnant before following through with more imaging scans. Best of luck.
