Right shoulder pain....also right shoulder blade makes a clicking/grinding noise

I am 20 years old and was in a car accident when I was 14 hit head on i was a front passanger.  I was diagnosed with having a head injury and also had whiplash in the neck back and jaw.  I was going to a chiropractor for about 4 years off and on...at times going as much as 4 to 5 days per week for months at a time.  My right shoulder would make a clicking/poping noise when i would do arm circles in gym class.  I showed my chiropractor and he wasn't concerned at the time.  I have not been to the chiropractor for over a year and about a week ago, i started to get a really sore shoulder when i moved my arm even slightly.  I was going to go to the doctors but the pain went away for a day, not completly but quiet a bit.  My shoulder is now acting up it even hurt when i type a bit.  When i move my right arm even slightly it hurts real bad the bones are making a grinding/poping noise but now in more places than before.  I am just wondering what it could be from.  My job requires lifting lots/stocking shelves and I do not want to injure it more by returning to work.

Start with a primary care doc and consider plain Xrays of the shoulder to see if there is anything that is obviously wrong with it.  Depending on the exam and your doc's clinical suspicion for something more serious, you may need a referral to an orthopedist and more extensive imaging such as an MRI of the shoulder. There may be a dislocation or early arthritis or torn rotator cuff muscle. Repetitive motions and heavy lifting could potentially make it worse so consider seeing someone for it sooner rather than later. Good luck.

Hey everyone,
I'm not trying to be totally mean or anything, but it's very frustrating as someone who comes to this site day after day after day to try to post a question (and have been doing so for two months now) and can never get one posted, yet see people who have posted several questions in a matter of weeks, or so. I love this site and that the doctors are willing to answer questions from us, I think it is absolutely wonderful. But perhaps there should be a limit to how many questions you can post in a given amount of time, just in fairness to let the rest of us get our questions up here?

Just an idea, sorry if I came accross mean or unappreciative.

Hi Sara,
Just wanted to let you know that they allow 2 posts per day in this forum (keep in mind this is open world wide) so it's not uncommon to wait that long to post.  I've had great success posting between 9am-10am EST (Sunday around 9:30-10am a great time to try).  Keep trying, I'm sure you'll get through at this time.  Good Luck!!

Sara, Perhaps you might want to post a question to ask the doctor
at neurologychannel.com   There is no limits to the number of questions there.  It may take a day or two for a response.  Good luck

Thank you so much for that link. I am going to keep trying to post here because I have heard such great things about the Cleveland Clinic Physicians, but it gets frustrating at times:)
