I am having a pain in my ac joint… where the clavicle and acromion meet. I feel a gap in my shoulder where they connect – not sure if that is normal or not?? Also when I walk and I put my finger on top of the ac joint I feel it move.

The pain comes from when I move my shoulder, usually overhead. I feel like a pinching sensation in the joint… Not sure what could be being pinched? Any ideas?

Also when I do door stretches my shoulder does like a pinching pop when I lean forward right there in the ac joint? Also as I type this I can feel the pinching pain in the joint.

I also feel like a bump on top of the ac joint that moves – really weird. The bump I feel like I can push in between the small space between the ac joint where the ligament is…. Any ideas? If I stick my finger between the small space between the clavicle and acromion and move my shoulder I feel the space become smaller when I move my shoulder in a upward motion… is this normal??

Is this common? My shoulder does not look separated though? I am very worried because I am scheduled for surgery on my other shoulder next Wednesday and now I am having these problems with my supposbly good shoulder. Doc said that he couldn’t do surgery on both shoulders anyway so he wont be looking at it till the 29.

I have been icing it and taking fish oil, glucosamine and chordnortion like crazy.
