Default OT: To all Doctors, Should Pain Help

Alright, I am positive I've at least partially torn my rotator cuff.

I don't have the intense pain when I press on the joints of my shoulder but cannot raise my arm parallel to the floor or reach behind me without stabbing pain.

Don't see the doctor until Monday, besides rest, ice, and anti-inflamatories, is there anything else I can do?

No, there's not.

I tore mine a number of years ago, and if I made my living throwing a baseball, I'd have to have major surgery to correct it.

But since I DON'T make my living throwing a baseball, it's something i just live with. It's healed to the point where my shoulder doesn't hurt until I throw a baseball or a football without a lot of gradual warm up. After that, I can throw at about 50% full effort with only minor discomfort. If I throw any harder than that, it's REAL painful.

Depending how how much you have to use your shoulder in the course of daily life, you may very well be able to get by without surgery. And since the surgery is no picnic, that can be a very good thing.

Thanks, I am hoping to avoid any surgery.

My left shoulder has been torn since I was 18. The only time I really worry about it is if I'm drinking or every now and again when I'm reaching behind me. Over time you learn what you can do so it doesn't dislocate your shoulder. I have a dead nerve in my deltoid too so that might not help me either.

Stop masturbating

Seriously apply DMSO. It's a miracle substance.

I got a Plantars Wart developing on my foot near the top next to my ring toe. I have thought about using a saw to cut off my foot. What else can I do?

get the planters wart remove with 40% acid content. That will remove it quickly. Or you can try the duct tape method. Both work.

Freeze off from Walgreens. It's fun and could also freeze a lurking mole too. Package says to avoid doing that but I tried it and froze one right off my leg. Thought about saving it in a jar.


As for the shoulder, try not to think about it all weekend, cause that can intensify the pain even more.

Be forewarned: DMSO will give you TERRIBLE breath and body odor.

The... "duct tape method"?

Is that a similar technique to the one that some guys use to remove chest hair?!?

cover the plantar wart with duct tape. The longer you can keep it on, the better. Once the tape is removed, soak your foot and then take an emery board and sand down the wart. Dry and repeat. The duct tape suffocates the wart.

How'd you injure it, do you know? I've been doing a lot of pushups lately and my shoulders have been starting to hurt more and more. Has me worried...

Step one was picking up my youngest on the stairs with arm and swing her up to my shoulder.

Step two was playing in a game last night, playing defense, I got my elbow jammed back into my body and it jarred my shoulder.

Had a wart once on the middle joint of my middle finger on my right hand. Covered that b**** with a bandaid, then a strip of ductape. Kept it on for 2 weeks. Wart gone, and has never returned.

Never tore anything as far as joints or tendons go, but I did dislocate my shoulder a long ass time ago. Still twinges once and awhile.

But if it hurts that bad, I can always kneecap you. Take your mind off of your rotator cuff, OP.

Could be tendinitis or bursitis especially if it happened over a couple days.

The bold is about all you can do at this point. If it is not torn you will likely need PT to fix but getting the swelling down at this point is crucial.

Shoulder pain is no fun. I miss being able to throw the ball around with the kids. Which is why I am promoting soccer big time to them.

ICE it up for as long as you can stand it then do it again and again etc...
