Retear: There is always a possibility of re-tear. It is important to follow the aftercare plan your specialist adviced. Do all your physio sessions and wear the sling for the time it was prescribed. If your dr gives you the go ahead to exercise you can do so, but start alow. Maybe start if with repetitions rather than heavy weight training.

When I wake up in the night I have pains between my shoulder blades and inside my chest. Is it something to worry about?

Maybe: Your symptoms may be from acid reflux from your stomach to your esophagus when you lay down. Try taking some Tums (calcium carbonate) (antacids). If the pain does not go away, i would call your doctor to make sure that it is not something more serious.

A 21-year-old member asked:

Would using my medications more frequently than prescribed speed up the clearing of my acne?

Acne use meds often: You doctor has prescribed medications for you (i assume) to be given, used, applied at specific times. More does not make it better. More pills would be dangerous; more frequent applications of the topical medication might cause burning and peeling. Stick to your "doctor's orders.".

Can exercise clear out heart inflamation?

Cardio conditioning: There are many causes of cardiac inflammation--infections, drug/chemo, radiation effects, excess alcohol, rheumatologic diseases, uncontrolled diabetes etc..While exercise itself does not get rid of inflammation in the heart, it may improve heart function and general health. It can help lower cholesterol/sugar, blood pressure and thus better heart-health. Other diseases must be treated. Good luck.
