I was on vacation and constantly slept on my shoulder or side on our hard mattress. One day I woke with extreme shoulder and neck pain. My thumb is numb and I have pain right on the ball of my shoulder, the back of my shoulder near my underarm, and the top of my shoulder and neck area. My arm is week, my bisep hurts and all my muscles in my shoulder are in spasms. Because of the numbing my doctor took xrays of my neck. He thought it may be a pinched nerve. the xrays show no problems in my neck. Could I have hurt my shoulder instead by this pushing? they keep looking at my neck and coming up empty (mostly because of the numbing thing). I cannot convince them to xray my shoulder at all. It hurts all day long, both places..the back of my neck and the ball of my shoulder. The pain increases tremendously at night when I try to lay down. No matter if I try to lay down on my back or on either side. Tons of shoulder pain then! None of the anti inflammatory meds or pain killers are helping at all and I am still in tremendous pain.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
