Post subject: Shoulder Injury
Yesterday i had a trip in kitchen. Fell sideways onto a worktop, my shoulder took the full force of the fall.
Top arm, shoulder and whole armpit is sore. Cant really lift my arm above my head and also getting neck pain on the affected side as well.
Just pulled muscle or get it checked out? What do you think?

i did a similar thing as a kid, i slipped on a spilt drink when out and banged my shoulder into a bench. i had soft tissue damage, and was in a sling for a week. i still suffer with that shoulder now when stretching, or carrying heavy things.

i was really young when i did it, only about 7/8.
i did injure it in the waltzers a few years back to the point where i couldnt move my arm very much, and turn my neck and the doctor gave me some muscle relaxant tablets, so might be worth going? they also gave me some gentle exercises to do such as rolling my shoulder.
