I have had shoulder pain (right) for about 2 years. I had surgery for a bone spur & rotator cuff repair (very small tear).
Now my other shoulder (left) is in major pain as well as my hip & knee all left side. I feel this pain that shoots down my leg from my buttocks (i think, could be from my hip?).
When I am standing up for a length of time I have to lift my left leg otherwise the pain starts to shoot down my leg.
My shoulders are the worse in the morning or from lying in a position too long.
Everytime I move my shoulders or knee when I have been in a position for a time they pop & crack, it gets painful.

Overall, I am a 27 year old woman. I am 5'8" and weight about 117. I am in good health.
I did not injury my shoulder playing sports, kind of a mystery how I had a tear in the rotator cuff.

Please help. What type of doc should I see?

  • Wow! You just described everything that I felt when I was diagnosed with TOS! I also had surgery for a bone spur and then another to shave off some bone and remove scar tissue. I also had pain on my right side which included my neck and up into my face, shoulder, armpit, down my arm, the top of my wrist felt swollen and warm, my hip hurt like heck, and my ankle was so painful that I could hardly bear weight on it.I read razzles reply and I agree that you need to at least see a pain specialist and get some diagnostic testing done. I've been doing pain management for about 5 yrs. now. It sucks to have to take meds every single day of my life to be able to function but when you have kids and a job, you have to do what ya have to do. Take care and please post what happens. I'm new here and haven't learned how to navigate the forum yet, but plan to do some more surfing around.Take care!
