Shoulder pain and grinding sound
I have had my right shoulder that has ached and makes a grinding sound like gravel grinding when moved certain ways for about 3 years , I have no injuries or surgery ever on it.
I have had the pain sread to elbow area and can only get comfortable at night if is above my head under pillow and I lay my head on it . if on my left side with it just resting on my side or on my back with it laying flat it keeps me awake aching , about four times now have almost lost grip due to pain .
what could this be ?
I am making appointment with V.A. to be checked.

Hi Hekjr,

Welcome to the Pain Management Forum. Sorry to hear about your shoulder pain.

I am glad you have made an appt with a physician. The shoulder is a complicated joint. Arthritis may have set in and be damaging the structure of the joint. You could have some bursitis or a problem with your rotator cuff or the cartilage. It will take some imaging of the shoulder to be certain what is going on.

I wish you the best and hope you will let us know how you are doing.

Take Care,
~Tuck
