Patient : I had a impact injury to my left shouder. I fell an landed directly on my shoulder blade. There was intense pain for a little over a week then it became a persisant ache. I went to the doctor after a month and he did x-rays and confirmed that nothing was broken or fractured and based on where I told him the pain was he diagnosed it as inpingement. But I believe I told him the pain was in the wrong spot because I thought the pain was deep through the top almost to the rotator cuff but now I realize the the pain is actually towards the top right edge of my left shoulder blade towards the center of my back. It has been almost three weeks since I have been to the doctor and I still have an aching pain. What do you believe is wrong with it?
