Shoulder, woulda coulda.

Alip123456 profile image

Hi all,

It's probably been queried here many times ... Every so often my left shoulder/collar bone/ neck ache (tip of shoulder moreso) it's usually find in the morning but come evening I can't raise my arm sidewards and slight movements can bring sharp pain. Paracetamol is keeping it bearable for the most part but I was wondering if anyone could enlighten me what it could be (I'm reluctant to go go). Many thanks in advance.

Sorry and could only move it forward the same without horrible shooting pains.

I had 3 steroid injections in a year and was told could have no more and had to have an operation to mend it. I'm gllad i did as its been brand new since.

Could be impingement, might be ligaments etc. Might be worth looking at Shoulder Doc site as it's good at describing various conditions:

Talk to your GP about it if it's starting to be too regular for you?

I am suffering greatly at the moment with shoulder, neck and clavicle pain. Partly due to osteoarthritis in my cervical spine and partly due to a hypermobile clavicle.

I am in the process of getting investigated for this. I suggest, you too, should visit the doctor and start the ball rolling. I went for about a year with mini flare ups that were uncomfortable but resolved quickly. Now I have been 2 weeks unable to sit upright without neck support and with pain that nothing touches.

Get it investigated -yes?

Good luck
