The Shoulder Bones Protrude?
In the evening I want to ask, for the past few months, the part of my shoulder seems to have a protrusion from the bone but the bulge doesn’t look hard like a bone if it is not held it doesn’t feel when it is pressed it will hurt n This also affects my neck so it becomes stiff. nAnd the cervical spine also hurts nSometimes accompanied by a dizzy head nI why yes nThank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
In normal conditions, there are several protrusions in the shoulder area that originate from the protrusion of the shoulder blades (scapula). This bulge is the attachment site for several muscles and ligaments that are important for their function in supporting movement and maintaining posture. These bony protrusions may appear more prominent on one side of the body due to genetic variations that are generally harmless.
However, apart from being a normal condition, it can also be a bulge on the shoulder that causes pain and stiffness not only in the shoulders, but spreads to the neck, head and spine which can also occur due to other causes, for example:
Post-shoulder injuries, for example those that cause joint dislocation (shift), fractures, osteomyelitis (bone infection)
Benign or malignant tumors
Skin infection around the shoulder, for example an abscess
Scoliosis (an abnormality in the curvature of the spine that causes the spine to tilt into an inverted S or S), and so on
It is very difficult for us to identify exactly which triggers your condition without doing a physical examination in person. Therefore, our advice, try to have yourself examined directly to the nearest health facility. Possibly, if there is an abnormality in the anatomy around the shoulder, the doctor will direct you to undergo radiological examinations, such as x-rays, ultrasound, CT scan, and so on.
What you need to do at this time:
Do not press excessively or massage the shoulder area that has a lump
Compress the shoulders, neck, and spine if you feel pain using warm water
Take paracetamol if the pain does not improve
Eat foods that contain lots of vitamin B12 which is good for nourishing nerves, muscles, and joints
Limit sleep on the side of the shoulder that hurts
Hope it helps ..
