Shoulder Problem

On Wednesday (Feb. 2, 2011) I was outside in our driveway at around midnight. I was walking my boyfriend to his car and when I was going to clear off his other headlight I slipped and fell. After he left and I went inside I noticed that my right shoulder began to hurt whenever I lifted things shoulder height or higher. Yesterday while working I noticed while pushing carts that my shoulder really disliked the pressure. My shoulder also felt painful when lifting the heavy products in our grocery store. I am going on the third day after falling and my shoulder pain hasn't gone away. It hasn't gotten worse but it hasn't gotten better either. At the moment I am just wondering what to do. Should I make an appointment to see my doctor or should I just give it time?

Re: Shoulder Problem

If the pain hasn't gone away for 3 days, well more now I would say definitely see your doctor. It is affecting your daily life (working) and at this point lifting things or putting excess pressure on it is not a good idea. Good luck to you hope everything turns out ok.

Re: Shoulder Problem

thanks, frankieswife for the reply. it has been about seven days after the fall and my shoulder stopped hurting after day six, however now whenever I rotate my shoulder I hear a single pop. I already have crepitus in my left shoulder after falling off my bike my freshman year of college. I just didn't want the same thing to happen to my right shoulder. I can say I am really feeling my age too...I am 23 and shouldn't have this many injuries I know....
