What can I do to ease the pain from scratches and the pain in my shoulder?

I had an intense day on a slip and slide. I'm way too big for ours, and since it's on a hill I kept flying off the end and hitting the ground, landing on my shoulder and scratching my arms, stomach, and legs up. I've taken an ibuprofen and have an ice pack on my sore shoulder, but I can barely move it. What can I do to ease the pain of the scratches and help my shoulder? I have to go to school tomorrow, it's my last week before summer vacation.

You can take more than one at a time. But you should always eat something before taking it. My dr. told me Ibuprofen is for inflammation and tylenol is for pain.  (+ info)

What could be the cause of left shoulder blade pain?

For the past few days I have been experiencing left shoulder blade pain. The pain is directly under my left shoulder blade and sometimes radiates around my ribs to under my left breast. I have no pain when moving my arm or shoulder. The pain is relieved with heat and pain relievers but comes back again within hours. The pain has started to keep me awake at night. Does anyone have any ideas or solutions? I am a 42 year old female.

Please go to the doctor to have it checked out. Hopefully it is just muscle strain but you do need to have it checked out as pain in that area as you are describing can sometimes be a small heart attack or a warning signal for a heart attack that is about to occur. The radiating nature of the pain and the area you describe points to a symptom that you should take seriously just in case..  (+ info)

What can pain in the shoulder blade mean?

I woke-up last night with a pain between my shoulder blades and figured it'd be gone this morning, guessing I slept wrong. But it's worse this morning.

It might be that you are under a certain amount of stress and tension has developed in your muscles. Ask someone to massage the area, or you could try massaging yourself.

Turning your face towards the left use your left thumb to massage the right side of your neck following the band of muscles from just behind your ear at the base of your head to the tip of your shoulder. Repeat that several times. Then turn your head facing the right and use your right thumb to repeat the process on the left side.

Or you may try using Voltaren Emulgel Gelgy to rub the area.  (+ info)

What could cause pain in the right shoulder when I inhale?

I have had a sharp pain in the right shoulder near the clavicle that radiates to the chest neck and jaw when inhaling for 3 days. Gall stones were ruled out with an ultrasound and an EKG was performed. Tylenol and Motrin do not help, Codeine dulls the pain, but it returns when it has worn off.

This happens to me off and on. Apparently its a signal that you're deficient in certain vitamins and minerals.
Are you eating good food or is your diet based on fried foods, junk food, fast food, etc ?

Your diet makes all the difference sometimes.  (+ info)

What could cause pain between my spine and shoulder-blade when I inhale?

I recently blew my noise and then inhaled deeply, at which time I felt a sharp pain in my back between my spine and shoulder blade on the right side. This pain has continued often as I inhale.

Obviously any sharp or deep pain should be investigated further by your health practitioner to rule out any organic problems. This sort of presentation is common with a dislocated or "popped" rib, and in an older more fragile person possibly a rib fracture. These can be painful and difficult to diagnose sometimes even on xray. This can occur from some sort of strenuous or repetitious activity ie shoveling or lifting or from an impact injury, straining (a sneeze) or like in contact sports. If you have visited your health practitioner and they have ruled out the more serious possibilities, I would suggest seeing either your Chiropractor, physio or massage therapist to address any structural problems that may be there. If it persists they should have an xray done at a minimum. Healing time could depend on a persons specific history and general condition.  (+ info)

how can i get rid of the worst shoulder pain ever?

im 14 years old, and starting in about november, i was getting bad shoulder pains in the same spot. it was bad then, but now it's only gotten worse. i used to be able to ignore it but now it's so painful that i can't even focus in school, this knot is huge too, it begins below the shoulder blade, then a little bit of it is under the shoulder blade and then the rest it about up to my neck. i used to think it was because i carry a somewhat heavy backpack all day at school, but it's been chronic on only one shoulder. ive tried the rolling on the golf or tennis ball thing, and ive gotten my mom to massage it, nothing seems to work. i don't know what i can do to make this pain go away. i take ibuprofen but it wears off quickly. i just want all this pain in my shoulder to go away. should i see a doctor about this? or is there another alternative? please help this pain is about to drive me crazy.

It sounds as if you may have bursitis...it is an inflamation...they can give you steroid shots for that...cortisone...no you WON'T grow a beard or get muscles so don't worry...but talk about a relief!!! OMG!! I suffered with it too until I got a couple shots...no problems since. Good luck!  (+ info)

How can I get rid of a pain in my shoulder when I do bench presses?

Whenever I do bench presses, I get a sharp pain in my shoulder that strikes when I first lift the bar off of the holders, and then it strikes worse when I put the bar back on the holder, when the pressure of the bar leaves my arm. It really keeps me from doing more reps than I could.

sounds like you got some over training issues there the shoulders are the first thing to go on overtraining because they get worked on so many different liftin techniques. Give yourself a days rest never do chest, triceps or shoulders the same day or day after split the lifting muscle groups up to have a day off or working a different muscle group the next day. Once you rip your shoulder up your screwed. Also there are some lifting techniques that are rough on them like dips if you go lower than a 90 degree angle with your arms and behind the head tricep extentions with the dumbbells use a lighter weight and lower reps  (+ info)

Why do I have pain in my shoulder when sleeping?

I have this terrible pain in my right shoulder that hurts so bad every time I sleep. It doesnt matter which side I sleep on. It also hurts during the day sometimes and I cant lift my arm very high. Also when moving my arm in a circular motion or up and down while cleaning the house. It seems to get worse with cold weather. What could it be? And what will make it feel better? Ibuprofen doesnt work and I am allergic to Tylenol.

you could have a tear in your rotator cuff. please go see a dr. as i am just a nurse. try asparin until you see your dr.  (+ info)
