So, a little while back I posted on here about shoulder pain in my left that has been bothering me for the last couple of months, with pain and popping sensations and not being able to lift my arm above my head or behind my back. I went to my massage therapist yesterday ( Who is also an R.N.) and she could feel all the inflammation in my rotator cuff and suggested I had a labrum tear from a few months back when my dog pulled on his leash hard, pulling my shoulder. I basically have just been doing the ice and ibuprofen and just trying to keep my shoulder immobilized. Since I know that this isn't specifically mind-body, I still have a question about the exasperation of symptoms. For instance, a couple weeks ago I went to San Francisco with my husband and daughter and walked 4 miles a day even with the shoulder pain. I tried to distract myself enjoying the sights, but when I came back home, the pain seemed to increase again, even though I am also walking on the treadmill every other day for 25 minutes. So, my question is, have any of you dealt with an injury such aa a labrum tear or anything pathological, and yet been able to heal it emotionally or at least help the symptoms come down? I feel TMS has used that area now, even though I know it takes time for the tear to heal completely, it is distracting me from stressful emotions. In particular last night, my daughter-in-law's mother posted on Facebook about us needing a whooping cough vaccination before my granddaughter is born in a couple weeks, which invited her friends to talk about vaccinations and how they're poison to the body, etc. etc. My son commented that they were going to be vaccinating their little girl and that it's safe and it's saved millions of children. My daughter-in-law's mother went on a rampage against him, which raised my hackles, being his mother. Anyway, it really got me churned up inside to where I was hurting worse and I was nauseous, because I was so worked up. Also, it didn't help that I probably need more physical therapy and possibly even surgery if the tear doesn't heal. Irregardless, it is still going to take 5 to 6 months to heal, which of course is very upsetting. So, any suggestions or advice would be helpful at this time. My doctor suggested an MRI, but I do know if it is a tear there's nothing they can do except for physical therapy, ice, anti-inflammatories, and immobilization to help it heal. TIA.
