While its difficult: To say without a physical exam, your symptoms do sound like a torn rotator cuff. If you are able to continue to lift it up to the side, but it just hurts, then you may only have partial thickness tear, but if you are unable to lift it even near parallel to the ground, then it may be full thickness. Wait for mri, and make sure you have a good ortho to follow up with. Best of luck. ...Read more

NO relation: You have given very little history. It may be from your work or some type of exercise you do. Would not overdo anything until you have an ortho check you out. The rotator cuff injury may be a clue as to why your joints hurt if it is joint. See the doc for better advice. ...Read more

Get examined!: At age 55 your most common cause for this pain would still be 'impingement' ( or bursitis). Labral tears causing this pain are less likely unless associated with the biceps 'anchor'( SLAP) lesions -- but less likely in isolation in your age group.Osteoarthritis can cause pain in this distribution . AC joint arthritis can also cause pain when rotating arm towards chest ( adduction). See an ORS! GL! ...Read more

What happens when you tear your rotator cuff?

What happens when you tear your rotator cuff?

Functional loss: The rotator cuff typically tears at the insertion where it attaches to the humerus bone (ball part of the ball and socket). Since it stabilizes the shoulder, a tear doesn't allow the large muscles of the shoulder (deltoids) to function correctly and indirectly causes weakness and pain. A rotator cuff tear does not heal itself and usually requires surgery to reattach the tendon to the bone. ...Read more
