Since being assaulted by a resident in a care home that I work at I have experienced onging and increasing pain in my shoulder, stiffness in my neck, pain in my arm and numbness with occasional shooting pain into my hand. I often have problems holding onto things with this hand, or I lose strength in it very suddenly. It is my left and dominant side. The MRI I just had done indicates a small amount of arthritis and bursitis but nothing that could, according to my GP, explain the the issues I am having. I do not think it is in my shoulder but in my neck. I am beginning to feel that everybody thinks I am crazy but the pain etc is real. What could cause this? What else should I do to gain help? I want to go back to work as a social trainer but I am having difficulty with the physical side of the job. But I love working with my residents!! Some advice would be appreciated.
