I have a shoulder problem , and I feel like a big baby because of the doctors sayin everything should be fine in a couple of weeks. April 12th, I was in a car accident .Of course, I was sore all over . I noticed swelling on my left shoulder where the seatbelt was and the er doctor said thats just from the seatbelt. I was still sore 4 days later but did a 16 hour shift at work ,and I woke up the next morning unable to move my left arm above my head and could not touch my right shoulder. I went to the family doctor and he did xrays and everything looked fine told me to rest my shoulder and it shoulder be better in a week. Week later still swollen and stiff so the family doctor sent me to an Orthopedic doctor< who made me feel like a ****r cause it was like i was wasting his time:eek: > more xrays and he said I strained my AC muscle and the knot and swolleness was due to muscle bunching in 2 weeks everything should be fine. Now, its December I can lift my arm above my head but I can hardly touch my right shoulder ,and I still have the knot and still swollen . Has anyone had anything like this before?
