I have slight shoulder pain when raising my arm above my head and doing pressing movements.  What is this?

Muscle/tendon injury: Without a history of a specific injury, your pain could be coming from the fact that you strained the muscles (deltoid or rotator cuff) around the shoulder or sprained the ligaments and joint that join the end of your collar bone (clavicle) to the shoulder blade (acromion portion of the scapula). You should seek a thorough orthopaedic surgeon evaluation if the pain persists past a week. ...Read more

It pains only when i touch, near lateral head triceps brachii. Is it fibromyalgia? Can this be the cause for the referred shoulder pain?

Local myalgia: Muscle co-contraction (i.e., muscle splinting) is a reflex protective response that is mediated through the cns. It results in muscle tightening (i.e., guarding) to protect the injured part. Usually there is no pain until the injured part is moved. To be included in the diagnosis of fm, the pain should be located in at least three out of four quadrants of the body or along the entire spine. ...Read more

What can I do to stop shoulder pain that I've had for 6 months but got worse 2 weeks ago (w/ headaches) when I fell on it/head while playing football?

Chronic pain: Hi Kylie, in order to help your shoulder to heal you should get a correct diagnosis. If your shoulder hurt after 6 months from the injury day that means you probably tore partially one of the ligaments or other anatomical structures and it can't heal on its own. I would recommend to see sports medicine doctor, get imaging and then treat it. And avoid activities that worsen your pain ...Read more
