Hi, I am just wanting some advice here as i cant get in to see a Dr or PT till monday.
Since i had my lumbar fusion I have had neck problems- not a big deal but uncomfortable but I am also sleeping differently etc.
Earlier this week I had an MRI and to save room in the machine I put my arms above my head. Since then I have had bad pain in my shoulder and arm radiating to my palm.
the pain is also in my neck all on the left side.
I cant lift that arm without using the right arm to pick up the left
I am already taking pain meds and have upped them the last few days but it hasn't touched this pain.
I dont know if the pain is from my shoulder maybe rotator cuff injury or from my neck.
I want to get in to see a Dr before I try for physiotherapy as I think am X-ray would be good. i dont want ot pay for a pointless appointment with a physio if I need an x-ray as I am really short on cash.
Has anyone else had this sort of problem?????
Any advice would be gratefully accepted
Blessings Sara O:)
