First of all, I’m going to call the doctor tomorrow to get professional advice on what to do, in the meantime…
I was playing soccer yesterday and took a hard fall, now I can barely move my right arm. When I fell my arm was raised above my head and I landed on my right side. At the time my shoulder hurt but it wasn’t my main concern because my left hand was bleeding. I then drove home and took a shower using my right arm to drive and wash myself. The only thing I couldn’t do with my right arm was lift my soccer bag, 10 pounds, out of the passengers seat.
As of this morning I can’t lift my arm to the front or to the side more then about 15 degrees. I can bend my arm at the elbow and rotate my arm toward and away from my body as if I was doing exercises for the rotator cuff. If I use my other arm to lift my right arm above my head it’s a little painfull but I can lower my arm to 90 degrees and then raise it back up and it feel strong. I can do this both forward and to the side but I am a little weaker to the side.
Has anyone had similar problems? Everything I’ve found online is people that had problems raising their arm above 90 degrees and not below 90 degrees. I’m thinking my injury is different because my arm was raised when it was injured. Thanks.
