Its a w/c case and i was stacking a kids place set which was heavy on a top shelf over my head i felt a burning and wearkness in my RT shoulder and cervical area. Ive gone to 3 DRs one thought i was faking it, another said it might be nerve, so they sent me to a pain specialist, ive been given lortabs which do nothing for the pain, also cybalta, lyrica, mortin 800, i used to take percocet which actually helped but here in texas there very stingy bout it... so i got my medical release from my back surgery back in 01 i have 2 herrington rods and 3 pins up in my thorasic and lumbar and the pain in my shoulder didnt start until that work injury.. so now im going to ask him to send me to a spine specialist... i guess... i dont know what else to do.. weakness, tenderness, spasms, sharp acute pain, numbness, tingling in right fingers, and worst of ALL BURNING ive gotten a CT scan done but nothing should up in the cervical and shoulder area, im thinkin it has something to do lower????
