you MAY have a rotator cuff injury...... here is a picture of the rotator cuff....if you press on that area is it tender?

very much so
Expert:  CamilleRN replied 5 years ago.
Oh gee. I am sorry to hear that.. this can be VERY painful, You are going to HAVE to see a Doctor if you can't get it to stop hurting. It MAY be tendonitis.... which is a much better thing to have as it will resolve with rest and care. What you can do is try ice to the area at 15 minute intervals ( 15 min on, 15 min off) and I highly recommend Topricin Cream...I have witnessed many patients rave about it's effectiveness.. patients with back paiin......carpal tunnell,, tendonitis etc.. it's Called Topricin and is only available at holistic medicine shops, health food stores and the internet. It works by decreasing inflammation, increasing circulation, and encouraging lymphatic drainage. Here is a link to read more about it:

is there any way to get a prescription for a few pain killers as well?
Expert:  CamilleRN replied 5 years ago.
I am is illegal for any Doctor to write a prescription without first examining the patient in person. Try the ice..see if you can get the topricin..and take ibuprofen, which is very helpful for muscle and joint pain. If it is the rotator cuff... no pain medication will really help, surgery is usually needed. We don't know if t his is the case or not.... so try all the measures, if it is tendonitis, which it could be, it will heal. If it doesn't get better in a few days, please see a Doctor.
