My shoulder made a poppin noise and now it hurts....i know its not dislocated cause I can move it ok.....what could it be?

Could be a Rotator -: Cuff tendon injury, bursitis, tendonitis, or even a shoulder joint subluxation (when joint doesn't dislocate completely but partially), so producing the popping sound and still having full motion as the joint probably self-reduced. Any of the above mentioned possibilities can result in Tendonitis or bursitis.
See an Orthopod and get investigated.
Good Luck. ...Read more

You could try, if you can take them, anti-inflammatory medications like Advil or Aleve (with food) as directed on the label. Treatment for a week is often effective. If symptoms persist or you're not able to take anti-inflammatory medications, see your physician for diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

My friend fell four days ago on (r) shoulder, she can't lift or move w? O pain she's a 62 yr old (f) she's on meds for other health issues, has been having blackouts & fainting spells recently

See a doctor: It's certainly possible that she hurt her shoulder. She could have damaged the joint, tore a tendon, fractured a bone or just be black and blue. She needs to be seen by an orthopedic doctor to determine what her problem is. The fainting etc also needs to be worked up. She could have cardiac problems or other unrelated causes. So again it is best she see a physician. ...Read more
