Customer Question
Okay... uhm, I have...

Okay... uhm, I have out of nowhere gotten this pain in my shoulder, it doesn't restrict my movement, but it feels like its in the "top" of my shoulder almost along my neckline and it hurts quite a bit. I had it for the first time around one and a half weeks ago, and I don't know what it can be!

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

I am female, 26, no previous incidents of any rather than these, no medicine I take apart from contraceptive pill... I am 163cm and 57kg... Have not lifted weights recently

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No, I don't think so! I haven't had this pain before, its like it moves along the "top lines" of my shoulder and beginning of neck, only the right side these past two times

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
