Bad pain and burning in the ball of both shoulders?

I have been having really bad pain in the ball of one shoulder, but the past few days it is in both shoulders and both are burning so bad it's like I have fire in them. My Mom has rheumatoid arthritis and I am wondering if this may be a symptom? or if anyone knows what may be going on?

Re: Bad pain and burning in the ball of both shoulders?

Have you limited range of movement. Is the pain continuous. What are the best and worst positions. Can you sleep on your side. Have you or have you had pain in your neck, can you move your neck freely. Have you had a shoulder injury. Does the pain travel anywhere. Can you get your hand back between your shoulder blades. What time of the day is the pain worst, and as the day goes on does it get worse or does it lessen. Does your shoulder area feel warmer.

Re: Bad pain and burning in the ball of both shoulders?

The range of motion seems okay. The pain is worse at times but has been in both shoulders for days. I am really stiff in the shoulders in the morning. It feels like a fire has been lit in both of them,they burning is extremely painful also. It hurts down to maybe 3 inches below the shoulder bone and they are sore to the touch. They are not hot but feel warm, and just touching the muscles even hurt. I can't press on the ball of the shoulder they are really sore. I haven't done anything different and have not injured them in anyway. The right has been hurting about 3 wks, then the left started a couple of days ago. Then today they started with the horrible burning too. My neck seems fine, and I can put my hand between my shoulder blades without any problems. The pain is bad of the morning ,then seems to lessen but picks back up as the day goes on. I really appreciate your help.
