I fell from a horse onto my left shoulder 15 months ago, injuring it badly. I landed on my shoulder tip initially, with my arm tucked under to protect my ribs. The ground was frozen sand, and I had pain from the outset. It felt better to keep my arm in a forward position, intially in a high arm sling. I had an x-ray which was ok, but am still waiting for physio (should have pushed harder). I'm right handed.
Now I have a number of problems:
From the outset my arms (both) would go numb if I slept in certain positions. This still happens, but maybe to a lesser extent.
My shoulder is stiff, achy, clicks and is weak. I have problems lifting and particularly moving it behind me against pressure (closing a drawer to the side of etc. Back-stroke is agony.
I get aching over the mid-clavicle, at the joint I think with the scapula
I get numbness/tingling in my little and ring fingers sometimes.
I get a burning/aching in my forearm sometimes.
Now I have a postural resting tremor, variable intensity, in the affected hand. It goes away for a while if I move my shoulder around. I think I've had it a few months, but now it is more obvious. Alcohol doesn't affect it either way, and I only take lansoprazole regularly.
I don't really want to see my GP right now as I am applying for a job in another country, and don't want it on my medical record.
Any suggestions re cause eg nerve damage, likely response to physio etc?
