I have a good dr it would seem like and went to a orthopedic specialist as well. He is telling me to go through physical therapy and I am high amounts of drugs as well. But I dont want to be drug dependant just to get through my day. I can barely work as it is. But thanks for the advice.Baby doll

I am 32. I have been involved in 3 major car wrecks, and just maybe they are way my shoulders and hips are all loose and hurting. My shoulders I have been diagnosed with open socket or loose shoulder. Hyperlaxation? here is what is happening with me. Both my shoulders are in pain all the time, it never seems to go away unless I am on vicoden, and then just for a few hours and then it comes right back. I try not to take those, I dont want to get dependant on them. My shoulder blades, socket, neck, back, chest arms and hands are effected. If I lay on either side for more than 25 minutes, my arms and hands go numb and completely fall asleep, which cause irritaion and more pain. If I am driving and I turn my head to the left to see if I am clear to lane change I almost cant get my head back to the normal position. If I talk on the phone and pin the phone between ear and shoulder for more than 3 minutes, I cant straighten up neck and head. My shoulders roll partially out of socket and stay there until they decide to roll back in, when muscles and everything has calmed down. Or if I go to the dr. If my shoulder is out, I cant barely pick up my arm or do anything that involves moving it at all. The right shoulder always hurts a little worse than the left, but right now, I have partail dislocation and I cant barely move my arm..My shoulders and bi-ceps heat up, to where they seem to be on fire inside my skin and that causes extreme pain. I have been going to PT for 2 times a week, and they want me to do MT as well, and I hate doing that, when I leave from that I am done for the day, I am in so much pain I cry alot. The dr wants me to undergo the PT for 6-8 months and if that does not help, I have to undergo surgury, the tightening of the capiliaries. Which does not sound fun. Does anyone have any advice for work...I live in WA state and was told that there is some kind of revocational rehabiltation center, that will retrain you for work that you might be able to do instead of what you do currently. Both my jobs I have are very physical, and I dont think that I can handle doing them for very much longer. I feel like my arms are going to fall out of socket and fall onto the ground. Needs help anyway you can. Please. In way to much pain. BD.
