Shoulder pain/stress: Stress fracture in shoulder, pain for >one year,Where is the worst pain ?Touch yourself, and do a drawing of your shoulder, arm, forearm, wrist and hand. Standardize the pain.No pain=0,mild=1-2-3,4 moderate=5,-6,-7 and severe=8-9-10.Touch with the index,applying moderate pressure, and mark it on the drawing, all numbers above 7.
