Shoulder hurts at the socket area. Feels heavy/pain radiates outward. Sometimes down my arm. I'm 25 healthy female. Carry heavy things sometimes.

Hard to say w/o exam: It's hard to say what is going on without doing an exam, so you should see your doctor in the clinic. I doubt that this is an emergency, as you are able to move your arms and there is no swelling in your hands, numbness, or loss of sensation. You could have arthritis, or a musculoskeletal injury (rotator cuff muscle / tendon strain) from heavy lifting. Brachial plexus nerve injury is less likely. ...Read more

I have been getting this weird pulse above my belly button and I am getting a bit worried. I am a 22 year old female. 165 pounds. I also have horrible back pains mostly on the left side of my shoulder going down my back.

See a doc!: "Horrible pain" that lasts for more than a day or so, needs to be checked (and sometimes sooner than that!) Feeling a pulse in your abdomen, can be normal, but it can also be a sign of an aortic aneurysm (unlikely at your age, but not impossible). Because of the pain and the pulsing sensation, you should get seen pretty quickly (this week), but immediately if your pain returns. ...Read more
