Dear Group,

A wild volleyball game on Sunday, 2 days later I was looking down while inspecting a small object and developed pain under my left soulder blade extending up to my neck. My doctor didn't look at it but prescribed 800mg Ibuprophen and some muscle relaxer (i dont recall name). Since then the prescriptions have run out but I continued with over-the-counter Ibuprophen and now I have stinging sensation all down my left arm that goes away when I position it over my head. Other symptoms are: Swelling at the base of my shoulder blade (no discomfort) but minor discomfort at the top of my armpit and just below my elbow, I will often cross my arm with my right fist under my left upper for least discomfort. I seem to have full range of motion in my shoulders and arms. I still have the twinge under my shoulder blade when I rock my head to the left and look up. I am still looking for a doc here to escalate beyond throwing drugs at it but maybe this will work itself out in time anyway? I was told by the first doc that Pys therapy would be verrrry expensive. It is now 4 months since the Volleyball game.
