On March 1st, I had some really bad pain in my shoulder. The first doctor work sent me to didn't do any testing, just gave me pain meds and said to come back in a few days. A few days later nothing is better, and she is googling shoulder pain, so I decide to get a second opinion. Second doctor is mad first doctor didn't start physical therapy, takes an xray to confirm no bone involvement, and fixes my meds. Fast forward 3 weeks of physical therapy, and I'm scheduled for an mri, where they see I've torn my rotator cuff. Then I get to see doctor number 3 who is a specialist, and she doesn't want me to use my right arm or hand for 3 weeks. Basically, I have a sprained muscle in my shoulder that needs to get better before they can work on the rotator cuff. If you're keeping track, that's five weeks so far of unbelievable pain, and now I get to do three more BEFORE doing something like a shot or maybe surgery, and then more recovery time after that. I'm miserable, I'm stuck answering the phones at work, which maybe ring once an hour, and when I'm bored, all I can think about is how much I hurt. I'm also posting this after midnight because I haven't been able to sleep with the pain.
