So I Think I Tore My Left Rotary Cuff (in my shoulder)..So much pain!!

Tuesday, February 16, 2010

Hey Diva's...

It's not looking to good for me. I think I injured my left rotary cuff, I can't lift my arm. I tried a new exercise with some weights & my trainer told me that the exercise should not have been done with weights. So I am not happy. I went to Boot Camp tonight & tried to just use my right side only. I hope I didn't agitate the problem more. So I called my mom to tell her & of course I told her I was going to wait it out on going to the doctor & wanted to see how it felt tomorrow, of course she told me to go see the doctor tomorrow.

I am hoping it's not my rotary cuff b/c a lady at my job & she had to have surgery & can't do any regular exercises for 6 months!! I am praying this isn't the case for me b/c I don't know how I am going to lose weight with no exercises. So please pray it goes well at the doctor tomorrow. I will keep you guys posted.

Good night...

    Hope all goes well with your shoulder. Take the time you need to recover and keep your head up.

    OUCH! Take it easy heat and rest that joint. I found out that for me the stretchie band works just as well and it is more gentle on the joints. emoticon .

    I've had two rotator cuff injuries, both from using weights improperly (finally learned my lesson!). The faster you get to a doctor for a diagnosis, the faster you will heal. I didn't need surgery, but required lots of physical therapy, including home exercises four times a day. They are necessary to loosen the joint. The upside was the exercises gave me great arm muscles. I exercised both arms so I looked even. Hopefully, you just have a strained muscle or other not so serious injury. Sending you hugs and prayers for a quick recovery.

    I hope it isn't your rotor cuff. I had a frozen shoulder about 2 years ago it what like a rotor cuff injury. I was difficult to do a lot with lifting and moving the arm in certain directions. Get with your doctor - perhaps you can get into PT and get it solved.

    Ask your doctor about a sling that straps down to stabilize the arm. I think they make them that some people even run with after shoulder injuries. Above all - take care of yourself! You only have two shoulders for life - and you'll need them both when you cross the finish line! emoticon

    I have a shoulder injury due to an accident but even if it isn't a tear they can be really painful and you should get it checked out.... I could not sleep on it for over a month

    Hope you get good news from the doc and heal quickly!

    It's contagious! My left shoulder is rebelling from some workout this morning and at my age sore muscles usually take a day to act up. Hope we both are worring for nothing

    I am praying for you. I am sorry you got hurt, and that you are in pain. I pray you feel better soon, and that it is not serious. Let us know what the Dr. says.

    I'm glad you are going to the doctor because that sounds serious. I hope all goes well and you just need to rest it for a while. My thoughts are with you because I know I would be gaining weight if I couldn't exercise, so think positive and keep us posted.

    I tripped and fell in October of 2008 and tore my rotator cuff. I had surgery the week before Christmas and went back to Curves in mid January doing only what I was able to do without using that arm. I also walked on my treadmill and was able to get in 30 minutes a day of exercise (my New Year's resolution) all through January. The surgery was easy. The recovery a bit slower but well worth it to stop the discomfort and be able to sleep again! I went to physical therapy for about 6 weeks and they accomplished miracles! I wouldn't wish a rotator cuff tear on anyone, but it is worth getting the right kind of treatment so you don't end up with a permanent injury.
    It has been a year since I finished therapy and I am pretty much back to normal except for a little occasional stiffness in that shoulder which I can help by doing some of the exercises they gave me and I can feel when the weather is changing because I have a slight ache in that shoulder. I have also lost over 40 pounds in that time and I am 67 years old! I now exercise at least 60 minutes every day without fail. It should be easier for you. emoticon

    I hope it's just a pulled muscle. Praying for you.
