Patient : I frequently get an aching pain in my left shoulder, more discomfort than anything but it feels like the it's moving in its joint, when i move my arm from say a typing position o straight down i feel the movement in the joint, I have had no injuries that I know of to that shoulder, i used to be a competitive swimmer as a child so did plenty of movement with it. This has gone on for a few years now, i find that shoulder is faster to go numb than the other if i'm lying on that side for long before it hurts. I have none of this trouble with the other shoulder or any other limbs.
