ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
It is hard to describe where I am affected I always want to say it is my shoulder because that is what I cant use for day to day activities. I've seen 6 doctors 3 specialist and done 4 physical therapy sessions I've even tried a chiropractor but nothing has worked.
My shoulder/back has a constant stiff burning pain in it I have very little movement in my arm my neck does not fully rotate as it should and if I attempt to rotate my arm around it will pop about 5 times and sometimes it gets stuck so I try not to move it to much as far as rotating. The pain will go down the front and back of my upper arm (a MRI showed bone bruising constant with a fracture but I had no trama to it recently) it also spreads to my shoulder blade and around it never goes to my lower back though stays very localized in my back area. The pain and stiffness travel up the right side of my neck and into the base of my skull which causes migraines and I dont know if it's related but the right side of my face will go numb when my arm is flared up along with tingling sensations and becoming more often I am experiencing vertigo spells and blacking out.
