For a few months the right side of the neck and shoulder blades have felt sore. Then the shoulder has become ouchier at times but only when I press on the shoulders or move in a weird way. Today I was dog walking and the dog lunged for something in the brush. Shoulder didn't feel real good afterward but not painful.
Tonight when I was lap swimming I got really bad shoulder pain, a 7/10 on pain scale. After awhile it quit, but I also cut the swim short because of the pain. I don't know if it would've come back had I continued swimming laps.
I don't do exercises or activities that would make me prone to shoulder overuse.. The pain started this spring, long before I started swimming. I am worried about shoulder surgery because neighbor had it and had to have each shoulder redone after the first surgery failed.
