terrible pain

Egoista

Professional
I am in my mid 30s and an avid tennis player and work out twice a week.

Need my exercise and have to sweat it out everyday.
However over the last week have developed a terrible pain behind my right shoulder lower down where my shoulder blade ends and connects to my back.

I worked out yesterday and played light tennis but woke up in even worse pain. Such pain that I am considering having pain medication.

Specifically Nuberol forte vs Ternaline.

Q1. Any ideas as to which one is better with less side effects or any other better recommendations out there? Do pain medications solve issue over time or does no healing occur?

Q2. What is the best treatment to fix this issue in my shoulder?

Thanks

Stop stressing the shoulder immediately and see a well qualified Dr for a diagnosis.

The shoulder blade or scapula is attached all around its edges by many tendons and muscles. Tendon tears are one common injury possibility. Stressing it while injured obviously could increase the injury, the tear damage. Any pain is a clear sign to stop. Don't mask the pain with medications.

The first part of healing is very important. That is where you are now.

I remember seeing a very young guy at the gym. He had given himself a shoulder injury lifting, probably his first injury of its kind. I may have said to stop but didn't understand what I do now about injuries, on healing times and how chronic injuries develop. He was proceeding ahead with a tough-guy approach........ I hope that he stopped.
