I had surgery on my left shoulder 7 months ago and I am not experiencing a dull ache all around my shoulder and upper back (scapula). The nerves, veins, etc in my arm pit are supper tight and when I lay down and stretch my arm out horizontally I can feel everything pulling.
Throughout the day I often have to stretch my arm out to relieve the tightness but it soon comes right back. The underside of my palm is also very tight and when I stand up straight and move my hand back towards my arm with palm facing down I can feel everytrhing in my hand and armpit stretch. I am also diagnosed with cubittal tunnel in my elbow.
Next wednesday I am schedule for arthoscopic shouulder surgery to see what is goin on inside and also a Capsulorrhaphy to tighten my tendons, etc.
I am worried that perhaps my problem is not in my shoulder and could be some other issue such as Thoracic Tunnel Syndrome. Has anyone experienced any of these symptoms? Could a messed up shoulder cause everything under your armpit to tighten up?
I am just not sure if I am taking the right step. I am in constant discomfort. Its not really a pain just constant aching in my shoulder and scapula region. IT keeps me from enjoying life and doing many things.
Can anyone lend a hand? What about having a capsulorrhapy?
