I have a pain in my right shoulder... my right side is my special side. The pain is when my rotator cuff is located. I am so sore in the morning and in the evening. Tylenol helps the pain, but I do not want to rely on pills. I do not recall when I would have injured my shoulder, I thought I must have pulled it, but me and physical activity do not go hand in hand lately!
I called the doctor, he said that post-stroke shoulder pain was common on the effected side of the body. It does not happen to everyone, but it is mainly from me favoring my gimpy hand. I guess I favor it... because it does not work! The lack use causes the lack of use in my shoulder, which is causing the pain.
I could wear a brace to immobilize it, but I would rather put my shoulder to work, than to wear a nasty brace. Or I can get a massage to loosen up my tense muscles... that sounds nice. I have researched what was said to me and I found a bunch of post-stroke shoulder pain research,crazy.
This stroke has been a pain in the butt... but now it has become a pain in the shoulder.
Here's to working my shoulder and getting results.
