Shoulder Injury?

    i’ve been trying to introduce more physical activity, but struggling because i’ve let it get to the point where i get sore from 2 jumping jacks. I played pickle ball and the day after my shoulders were all jacked up. The right shoulder was surgically repaired (torn labrum) in 2009 & had been bothering me for a while, so that made sense (i’m also right handed). What makes no sense is that my left shoulder is equally as messed up since that day, and neither has gotten any better after about 3 weeks now. I don’t want to go back down the orthopedic/ MRI rabbit hole. There’s no doubt the level of stress i’m carrying right now is TMS rocket fuel. I don’t know how i could have possibly injured my left shoulder during that game but the timing is suspicious. I sleep right on that bit of my shoulder too & hurting myself while sleeping isn’t exactly impossible for me either. I’ve never had my TMS cause shoulder issues before but I can’t rule it out. I’ve got the low back experience but this is almost as limiting. Should I bother with that imaging or just start the light physical rehab & give it more time? It can’t be related to the old surgery if both shoulders are painful in the exact same spots beginning at the exact same time.

    You have to lose ....
    First : your conscious/felt fear of being injured (your body is ok !)
    Second : your unconscious/unfelt fear of being enraged (your inner child is every angry !)

    So easy....so difficult !

    If you can find Phil de la Haye's story (he's a TMS coach in the UK), read it. His story is very similar to yours. His question is so similar to yours, which is what lead him to discovering the TMS mechanism. Pretty much what he found is what mbo states. Most TMS practitioners suggest is is wise to get things checked out. If you live close to a TMS Doctor, it might be worth it.
