I was working on my car door window this morning replacing the track that it slides up and down on and when I finally reasembled the door I found that it didnt work. So I decided to help the window up from the bottom while pressing the electric button when all of a sudden I heard and felt a major tear in my upper arm to about 3 inches below the shoulder. I shuddered in pain for a while keeping it still till I was able to get in the house. The pain was intense for about 30 to 60 seconds and then mostly subsided. Now at this point I still have pain if I try to put my palm face up the pain level is a 7 in this case. If Attempt to make a muscle the pain goes to an 11 I am a poor man in poor condition and want to know if this will heal on its own or is there:(:) a good chance a surgery will be mandatory :eek:for this injury?
