Hello,[br][br]I am wondering if anyone can help me with a chronic issue:[br][br]Nov 2009 - Shoulder surgery for impingment - distal clavicle resection & decompression[br]-- After surgery AC joint was sore but around March 2010 I began to get tightness in the posterior of my shoulder and upper left back w/ a dull ache feeling around shoulder joint and scapula. Sometimes I also got a crawling sensation around the scap area as well.[br]May 2010- Tried Active Release Technique, Graston, and Chiroipractic to fux issue[br]June 2010 - MRI and EMG study - MRI showed the joint was fine. EMG/NCV study only confirmed that I had cubittal tunnel in my elbow, which I was diagnosed with two years ago.[br]June 30 2010 - Capsularrphy Shoulder Surgery - Doctor said my RC was very loose so they tightned it thinking this could be the cause of the ache since EMG/NCV was negative.[br][br]So I am now 2 weeks posat surgery, in a sling, and the ache and crawling sensation and tightness is still there!! Its not pain but very very discomforting![br][br]I am wondering what is causing this? Could it be weaken muscles on that side? I tried to lift heavy somewhat early after the first surgery without following the PT recovery protocols. Could that have done anything?[br][br]I am kind of at my wits end and do not know what else to do, especially after having another surgery ion which the doctor said besides my RC being loose there was nothin else wrong with my joint.[br][br]Symtoms now:[br]Dull ache around shoulder[br]Some crawling sensations around back of shoulder joint and upper back (scapula area)[br]Tightness when I shrug my shoulder up[br][br]What Makes it feel better:[br]Laying down[br]exercise[br][br]What makes it worse[br]Anything other than above[br][br]Please help!!!!
