I have this severe shoulder pain. I thought that I had dislocated something, the pain was so bad I went to emergency on Monday. The xray determined it was not broken or dislocated. Apparently, there is a problem in my rotator cuff area; they can not determine if it is a tendon problem or calcium deposits. I have to wait to see my family doctor who should schedule an MRI; which I don't know how long this will take. I am in so much pain, I can't sleep, I can't focus at work and I definitely can't workout. I thought originally it was possibly because I was lifting too heavy, but there does not see to be any known causes for "calcium deposits" in this area Has anyone experienced this? What can I do to ease this pain until the doctors can organize themselves?
