sorry to give you this news, but icing and pain killers are pretty much all you can do on your own.  that sounds bad.  please make sure you get to see a doctor asap!!!!

You could order a taxi to come to your home!! OR dial 911!!! I'm sure an ambulance wouldn't mind, as it is an emergency..

Is it dislocated?

 i think it is the torn ligaments and or muscle but it feels like someone stuck a knife in there and is twisting it around.

I believe that looking at the images on this page for a minute or two can bring substantial relief.

It's not what the images are for, but try it anyway.

The ice and painkillers will, of course, help.
Please let me know how much you gain from my post. If the idea doesn't work for some reason don't persist with it too long, you might get a headache to add to the sore shoulder.
BTW, It's late and I am tired. I'm going to bed.

don't heat.  this soon after the injury, it will only promote inflamation.

OK...no ice.... thanks.. the pain killer is not helping.. I cant take anymore.. my kidneys are not liking it nor my liver.. i had some elevated kidney and iver counts again so we are watching the ibuoprophen and the alternitive was to replace it with vicodone at night.. when pain is worse.. but this morning my old injury or problem flared up!

 I don't think I will make it through the weekend if today is any indication for the weekend..

i have had ice on it al day with no breaks and it is still horrible.

thanks again.

Is it dislocated?

If it seems dislocated you should get attention asap
to put it back in place and minimize stretching and
pinching of nerves and blood vessels; not to mention
the pain! The sooner, the better.

It is not dislocated... but it ha done the same thing that happened ast time...in physical therapy...
he refused more physical therapy until the orthopedic guy fixed the problem....
 i cannot etend t without spasms  even perfectly still it is really bad..trying to move it out away from my body is constant pain right know.. it feels kinked... like a muscle shrnk or my arm needs to pop at the elbow but the pain is to bad to open the arm...it gets worse....like its going to snap   the bicept ara feels like it is burning. on fire inside the musle..

Karen Good luck with the hospital and do take care of yourself also get well soon
Rosalind Franklin was my first cousin and one my life's main regrets is that I never met this brilliant and beautiful lady.
She discovered the Single DNA Helix in 1953, then it was taken by Wilkins without her knowledge or agreeement.

Spent all day there ended up with a pain killer that was enough to knock an elephant out and doctor who was crazy daft rude, and arrogant and lacking basic reading skills as well as bedside manners.. who basically told me that my Doctors and my heart specialists were all quacks and full of hot air.... I wanted to throttle him.. he was only interested in dispensing narcotics or med for pain and not at all interested in my arm.... or fixing it only adding medication!!!  I was very angry.. he looked at my records and ran tests on all the stuff he could think of regarding my heart and not my arm which was the issue! So I am a tad upset!
