,rI’m 18 years oldrnI often feel pain in the left shoulder. It’s been a long time.rnBut lately I often feel the pain, even though it was rare. I think it’s because I’m lifting a school bag that’s too heavy, but I’ve reduced the capacity of my bag but it still hurts. The pain also appears when I’m sitting.rnDo you think that’s why? So how do you reduce the pain?

1 Answer:

Good evening, thanks for asking at Pain in the shoulder, or in any part of the body the cause is divided into two: local or referral pain. What is meant by local pain is pain caused by the structures that make up the part. In your case, for example, localized shoulder pain could be caused by abnormalities in the skin, muscles, bones, joints and nerves of the shoulder. Causes by the skin are usually preceded by a viral infection of the skin and cause symptoms in the form of painful red bumps. While abnormalities in muscles, bones, joints and nerves are generally preceded by injuries, those that arise can be due to exercise or bad habits such as carrying a heavy bag on one side of the shoulder.

As for referred pain, this pain arises due to organs located deeper, such as the heart, liver, pancreas, stomach, large intestine, kidney, small intestine, bladder and so on. And for the left shoulder area, referral pain can arise due to disturbances in the lungs, diaphragm, spleen and heart. For the right shoulder is generally due to disorders of the liver and bile.

So in your case, it could be that the pain caused by the injury puts too much weight on the shoulder, even though it has been going on for a long time. This is because it could be because your shoulder has not fully recovered. But if you feel other symptoms such as palpitations, chest pain, shortness of breath and so on, then you can suspect that the pain in your left shoulder is caused by other organs.

So our advice is that for the first step you should check with an orthopedic or orthopedic specialist, because based on your age and symptoms, we should consider local causes first. If your orthopedist finds no abnormalities, then please try to check with an internal medicine specialist for the next step if you are still worried. The first way to reduce pain that you can do is reduce the burden that is supported by the shoulder and left hand, warm your shoulder and take paracetamol or ibuprofen to relieve pain, of course, by reading the rules listed. I hope you and your family are always healthy.

That's all, hope it helps.
