How long has this been going on? Any trauma involved? Does it hurt to move the shoulder? Any leg swelling?
It started 6 days ago..i woke up in the middle of the night. and it hurt to move my shoulder and to breather... the meds i got from the docotor the next day have not helped at all. there was no trauma involved at all. It does not hurt to move it, or does it have any swelling. i can not find a comfortable way to hold my arm so that it doesnt hurt. the pain levels come and go. it goes from a 8 which my shoulder is extremely achy on the top part and it hurts really bad to breathe. when the pain is at an 8 it feels like i need to take a deep breathe to make it feel better, but it just makes the pain intensify a little bit and when it goes down to 4 to where it only hurts a little to breathe. i hope this helps, and i hope that you can help. i have horrible insurance, and do not want to spend allot of money on tests that i may not need.
I understand. From what medications you were given, it would seem the doctor thought you might have asthmatic bronchitis? Did he consider a chest x-ray? And no leg swelling?
