What are some of the symptoms of a broken rotator cup in the shoulder?

Some random left shoulder pain & occasional  tingling in left side of  jaw & some nausea. Exercise did not worsen symptoms. Heart related or anxiety?

Something else: Your symptoms don't sound like either cardiac (nor anxiety-related) symptoms especially given your age and you did not mention if you had any cardiac symptoms, your symptoms do appear to be referred from another source, perhaps stomach or esophagus. I suggest seeing your primary care physician who can evaluate your symptoms in more detail and examine you. ...Read more

I have torn rotater cups in both shoulders, how can I srengthen my shouders and alleviate some of the pain naturally?

The physical therapist can also show you stretches you can do at home to help heal rotator cuff tears. If surgery is needed find a good orthopedic shoulder specialist. Ask your doctor for the appropriate referral. ...Read more

How to treat an injured or dislocated shoulder and injury in thigh rotater cup area?

Depends: This is a complex issue. A person < 45 yo usually doesn't need surgery after one shoulder dislocation. A person > 45 may have torn a rotator cuff and may need surgery. It is my strong recommendation that you see an orthopedic surgeon with experience with shoulders for a thorough discussion of all the issues. ...Read more
