Is it normal to have shoulder dislocation followed by finger numbness?

Can be. You can damage your brachial plexus with certain dislocations. I would recommend seeing a physician to check on both vascular and nerve issues to make sure there is not lasting damage or necessary interventions. Consider seeing a physiatrist for this type of injury as they will be able to do an EMG if necessary.

Yes. A shoulder dislocation can only occur if there has been fairly extensive soft tissue injury - in other words, the joint can only pop out if there is fairly extensive tearing of the supportive structures. So it's definitely normal to have persistent soreness for a while, until everything heals. The good news is that with time and rehab, you'll likely have excellent if not complete recovery.

Can be normal but... X-rays are a good initial imaging modality but will not reveal the capsular and labral damage that often goes along with a shoulder dislocation if it is traumatic. As long and the shoulder is stable thru a functional range then some discomfort at 5 days is expected. Beyond several weeks, if you have significant discomfort a surgeon may wish to get more diagnostic information with a MRI scan. Read more...
