Hello, welcome to the site! My name isXXXXX and I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek
I'm sorry to hear about this
Do you take any medication?
Can you see my replies?
Sorry something was wrong with the chat.
I am not taking medications.
have you been diagnosed with any medical conditions?
Okay, have you had an MRI or CT scan of your shoulder? What type of doctor have you seen?
I have not had an MRI or CT scan. The most recent visit was to the ER, that's where they ended up diagnosing me with heartburn. The visit prior to that was with my regular doctor.
Any swelling or redness?
Does any thing make the pain better?
Sometimes when I stretch it helps a little but only for few minutes.
Does anything make the pain worse?
It seems like sitting for extended periods of time makes it worse. I work at a call center so I sit 8-9 hrs per day.
Okay, this may be due to a tear in your cartilage of the shoulder, called the labrum, it usually requires months to heal and often rest with physical therapy, to diagnose this properly an orthopedic surgeon needs to examine your shoulder
Are you there?
Yes I am here. What may have caused this tear?
It could be caused from any movement in your shoulder
Do you think repetitive movement may have caused it? Like using a computer all day?
Yes,repetitive movement may be the cause
