I am 32 years old and have been having problems with my right shoulder. Fifteen years ago I had a brachial plexus injury in my right shoulder and I had physical therapy for a few weeks, but it didn't really help. Every time I run I get a really sharp pain in the shoulder. When I do push ups it feels like the shoulder is "twisted" and it makes it very difficult and painful. Also when I lift my arm above my head and turn my head I get a really sharp pain run up my neck, the same thing if I do situps. Even if I put my arm behind my back it is very uncomfortable and sore. Now when I work on the computer or drive my right hand goes ice cold. My chiropractor thinks I may have bursitis in my shoulder and should see an orthopedic doctor they told me that they could not help me. I'm not sure where to go from here.
