You may benefit from seeing a DO who can also evaluate you musculoskeletally, and realign you too. The in person exam will determine if imaging is needed or not. Good luck! ...Read more

I slept on the couch and woke up with left arm pain. I have pain and difficulty in lifting my arm over my head, taking it behind my back and moving my forearm outward. What should I do?

Slept on arm: You probably had your arm go to sleep because you were laying on it (blocking normal blood flow). Usually the symptoms go away within the first 20 min or so after you wake up. Sometimes a bruised feeling might persist for a day or two. If your symptoms are worse than a bruised feeling you should seek a medical evaluation to make sure something more serious is not going on. ...Read more

Doctors saying my left arm hurting is a frozen shoulder. I can move it when im sitting up its when I lay down it feels like its gets locked in place?

?: Pretty young for capsulitis which most often times affects women aged 40-60. Can you move it to the side with external rotation and is it equal to your other arm? If so, its not frozen shoulder and something else. I would probably have a shoulder doc look at it with at least an xray if it persists. ...Read more

There are other potential causes, however, and so it would be good to just get a regular check up to make sure it is nothing else. Physical therapy, chiropractic, and interventional pain management are the non operative treatments for it if it doesn't get better. Thank you. ...Read more
