Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

a strained muscle can do that.

Dr. David :

also a pinched nerve in your neck can do that as well

Dr. David :

have you tried icing the neck?

Customer: Thankyou for reply,the neck feels a little better ,it's the shoulder pain,but haven't tried ice
Dr. David :

you should try ice on your shoulder.

Dr. David :

and see a doctor as well

Dr. David :

you could have torn a ligament in your shoulder

Customer: That's great thankyou
Dr. David :

you can try tylenol or advil for the pain.

Dr. David :

you are welcome

Dr. David :

if the pain doesn't get better, you need a shoulder xray and to see a doctor.

Dr. David :

good luck

Dr. David :

let me know if you have questions.

Customer: Yes I will,my own fault ,it's only been three days so I'll give it a couple more and go to the doctors,it does keep clicking and cracking!!
Dr. David :

if it hurts when you breath, you should go to the ER for evaluation.

Dr. David :

you could have dislocated the shoulder if you were not careful.

Customer: it's only breathing in,out is fine!!
Dr. David :

well, you need to breath in.

Dr. David :

do see a doctor as soon as possible about it.
