I think I cracked my clavicle when I landed on my shoulder. How many hours is it ok to wait before getting seen?

Any time: Since a completely broken or fractured clavicle will heal on its own in the majority of cases, there is little urgency to being seen. If the pain resolves over a few days and you regain full function, there may not be a reason to seek care. If you have worsening symptoms, or difficulty breathing, then you may need urgent evaluation. ...Read more

Rotator cuff?: Can you raise your arm? If yes, then I suspect a contusion that should slowly improve over 4 weeks or so. If it dies not improve or if you can't raise your arm find an orthopedic shoulder specialist soon. Good luck. ...Read more

I missed first step of the stairs coming down backwards landed on my shoulder.It didn't hurt until two days passed.now severe pain in upper arm.broke?

Maybe (not) . . .: It's impossible for me to tell whether you/that person broke his/her arm or not. It's less likely if pain didn't start until 2d later but perhaps it took that long for adrenaline from fall to wear off, so to speak. Regardless, given onset of severe pain now, it's best for you/him/her to see GP ASAP. Go to nearest A&E if GP not available. I'd also worry about bleeding in brain (head injury) etc. ...Read more
