Common Household Remedies Request
I've had a steady pain in my left shoulder for a few days (no numbness or tingling, nothing in my chest (fortunately). The pain seems to be running along my clavicle, i.e. it's "on top of" my shoulder and not deep within it.
Naturally, I Googled on this and found -- d'oh! -- computer usage to be one common cause, and since my MacBook Air is momentarily hors de combat, I've changed to a different computer,. and perhaps I have changed my posture, to the detriment of my shoulder. Also, I've been doing a lot of painting, and carrying heavy gallons of paint in my left hand, and though I don't to think of myself as physically unfit, I surely am.
Anyhow, this doesn't seem acute in any way, just chronic. But I've been waiting, and it hasn't gone away. Any suggestions on what to do?
Acupuncture or massage?
Work on through it?
It's an age thing, get used to it? Needless to say, if this ends of interfering with my ability to type, I'm in trouble!
NOTE It gets worse as the days go on. Last night it was hard to raise my arm to get my shirt off.
