This answer was rated:

I'm based in Ireland, I suffer with pain in right shoulder. I had a car accident last year but when I went to hospital they never xrayed it.
JA: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?
Customer: On and off for a year. Exercise or weight makes it worse
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: Better if I don't do much or take pain relief

Ok

Thanks a lot for your input. I am sorry to hear about your problem. I am going to address your primary concern but later you can ask anything you want. The likely cause of your symptoms can be a muscular sprain. You might have got some tear as well and it's likely that it still keeps getting worse in between. You should ideally take over the counter available tablet Advil 400 mg thrice daily for 5 to 7 days regularly, massage the area with Bengay gel twice daily for 2 weeks and apply heating pads to the area twice daily for 2 weeks. If symptoms persist or keep happening, again and again, you should get physical therapy but I reassure you that this is not a missed fracture so please don't stress yourself. I wish you good luck and that you get well soon. My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done. You can come back here to ask anything even after you have rated the answer. I will be glad to help you always. A 5-star rating is requested and will be appreciated. Regards

Do you give referral letters for an xray
Customer: replied 7 days ago.
Thank you for your response

No, we can't give referrals but in my opinion, X-ray will not reveal anything. If your symptoms persist after my suggestions then you will need MRI rather than X rays as your soft tissues need to be assessed. My best wishes and prayers will be following you for good health.
