First of all, I have to say that I am so sick of this, so so so very sick of this that I fear smoke is coming out of my ears! Long story I will try to keep it short: Jan 2006-I jumped onto my shoulder, on pavement, the tip of my shoulder took the entire blow....dx'd w/ broken collarbone...fastforward five months of disability and general puzzlement over lack of healing of said clavicle to finally outpatient surgery where it is discovered a dislodged bonespur stuck between my acromia bone and rotator cuff...ok, resection of clavicle, acromia bone, debridement, a few bonus bursectomies and synovectomies and voila! on my way to recovery...so for the most part I was healing ok albeit a bit slow for my liking....the entire time (and at the time of the injury) I felt a strange pain in my shoulder BLADE, the BLADE my friends...in ADDITION to the collarbone...anyway, this was never xrayed or really looked into...my surgeon chalked it up to muscle pain from the months of holding my arm unnaturally because of the collarbone/acromia injury. Finally I get to a point where, hey I think I might be cured. Then, last week, I am reaching into the back of my car and I feel, ***l I HEAR something in the area of my shoulder blade pop and boom! slowly but surely here I stand, once again, in near to unbearable pain. Went to urgent care, dx an issue w/ my trapezoid, recommended deep massage. But two days later can barely put in a full day, all kind of numbness and a regular popping in that area. Obviously I now have to head back to my surgeon. But please, if ANYONE has any experience w/ this type of injury, PLEASE do share!
Thank you
