Hope you get to feeling better. Seems like we can get hurt doing the simplest things. I was out on a job back in September for a company I do some work for. Banged my elbow but not bad. Two weeks later after some pain finally went to DR. Nothing broke. That was on a Thursday. They did give me an antibiotic because it was red and slightly swollen. By Sunday you would have thought my arm would bust open it was swelled so bad. More weekly trips to Dr. {nurse practioner} MRI. Couldn't find anything wrong and she said maybe the MRI was read wrong. Quit going. Odd thing it was just barely a bump but I did have ahold of a heavy cabinet.
Give me a new saw chain and I can find you a rock in a heartbeat.

Don P, another friend of ours also broke both wrists at once, he said he never knew his wife loved him that much  :).
My bil dropped a tele handler bucket on his foot last week and broke it, was scheduled for surgery last Monday but of course infection set in he goes back to see Doc today to find out when it can happen, mega doses of IV and oral antibiotics.  Take care of that shoulder Woodhauler and take it easy for a while.

I did the same thing to my elbow about 3 months ago but it never swelled never went to the doc and now I have trouble gripping something it hurts so bad and now it looks like I'm growing a second elbow when my fore arm is bent in to my chest if I hold the phone to long I have to take it out of my hand with my other hand and the tiers will dribble down my face when I try to straighten out my fore arm my wife says I'm an ars for not going to the doc some day ill go most likely when its to late

Still no movement at shoulder! When I try the pain says no. Can use arm from elbow down with minimal pain there.

This is short but some pretty clear reading about what is going on;
https://www.cedars-sinai.edu/Patients/Health-Conditions/Bursitis-of-the-Shoulder.aspx

This might be a better pic of the bursa that is causing the problem, you've got a couch pillow in there right now.
http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/bursitis/multimedia/bursitis-of-the-shoulder/img-20006772

Keep that elbow pinned to your side for awhile or the bursa just stays blown up. If you push through that repeatedly it isn't good. It sucks but if you're good to it it will keep it from being a whole lot worse. My unfixed shoulder is where you'll be soon enough. I had things to do here the other day but took the wife on a cruise just to be away from temptation, I could feel mine puffed up, that 440 lb trebuchet weight got away from me a little bit the other week when I was welding it up and a few more fibers went. OK, so I took her on a cruise all the way to Blacksburg, but we did tour the Napa  ;D

 Rita made up a rice bag. We put it into the  microwave for a few seconds to a minute. When it's hot I put it on my neck or lower back. It help's a lot.

Sorry to hear of your injury Woodhauler.

Google "Ice or heat", I was told heat is for sore muscles and ice is for injuries and if swollen never use heat.

Hope you recover quickly!

p.s
I use "811 Nova Scotia" for info, it is run by the provincial health care department so no one is trying to sell you something. Under search you can look up "shoulder injury"

Well I had to move my truck out of garage and that told me I'm not ready to go haul wood! Had all I could to turn the key and then release parking brake.

Had a long night, pain was severe! Had to pop another happy pill at midnight! Today is so so. I am getting restless. First real cold snap in a month and im messed up.

Think im giving up on happy pills! Even though I only take them at night, I'm sleepy during the day too! I can move it some but like someone earlier said it sounds like a bowl of rice crispys! Pain is so so.

Woodhauler, I found that taking extra strength Tylenol made the happy pills work better and make me less tired. I have two doctors and three nurse practioners that all say take the pills 😀. I take one pill at four hour intervals and Tylenol's in between.

One thing that might help gently loosen it up. Lean forward over a table supporting yourself on the other arm and let the sore one hang down like an elephant's trunk. Just gently dangle and swing it, no power just  loose pendulums and small circles. It helps keep it loose without strain. Mentally try to tuck a newspaper under your armpit and keep it there all day otherwise  ;).

Well  a update with MRI findings! Not good,  Heres what it said! There is a complete retracted tear of the entire supraspinatus tendon with tendon retracted by 4cm. The tear has occurred within 10mm of the insertion in the greater tuberosity. The tear may involve some of the superior fiber sof the infraspinatus tendon, but the bulk of the infraspinatus tendon appears intact. There is also complete retractedtear of the subscapularis tendon, and the long head of the biceps tendon has slipped completely out of the bicipital groove. There is a moderate amount of fluid in the subacromial/subdeltoid bursa. There is superior subluxation of the humeral head. There is minimual atrophy of the supraspinatus and subscapularius muscles. There is degenerative change in the acromiclaviculay joimt with mild bony overgrowth on its superior margin. there is a type 2 acromion. No humeralfracture is evident. No visable glenoid tear. Small shoulder joint effusion.    Impression; 1 .Massive rotator cuff tear involving the entire supraspinatus tendon and subscapularis tendon, and possibly extending into the most superior fibers of the infraspinatus. 2. Complete displacement of the long head of biceps tendon out of the bicipital groove where it lies along the anterior aspect of the humeral head.  SO in words we all can understand, I AM SCREWED!!!!!!!

Well you are screwed, but just think how much reading and posting you can do for 3 months while you recover.
