My right shoulder always aches. It'd be a 4/10 on a 10 being an out of your mind pain. As I rotate my arm it snaps, crackles, and pops. I don't even have a 'physical' job. I was lifting weights (still do, just eliminated most things with my shoulder). I do real light shoulder workouts I've found online for rehab - but it doesn't seem to help (after a few months). Been to a doctor, xrayed it - they saw nothing. He gave me a cortisone shot, but it seems I'm one of those rare people that cortisone actually makes feel worse (I had something called a cortisone flare). That subsided thank goodness, but the preshot pain level is constant. NSAIDS help, but most days I won't take them due to potential for it causing stomach problems. I've recently started swimming as I read that it was good for shoulders, but it doesn't seem to help either. Not sure if it is making it worse or not. Sigh. Thoughts? Tips/Tricks? Anything?
