There are several possibilities here. One is that this time either the dislocation or the relocation damaged some muscles or nerves in the area. The other is that this time either muscles or nerves became "entrapped" ie are caught between to two bones of the relocated joint. A careful orthopedic or neurological exam, possibly followed by an MRI, would be desireable to make sure this is not a problem that will become permanant without further treatment.

I have an appointment 9 days away, is it ok to wait until then to have it looked at?
Expert:  MasterDoc replied 7 years ago.
Honestly I would say that is less than ideal. That delay could make it more difficult to fix.
