    I cannot sleep! When I try the bone from my shoulder down hurts. It feels like a bad toothache pain. It seems to not bother me so much when I'm not lying down. I went to 7 physical therapy sessions and it didn't help. This started to hurt over 2 going on 3 months now.

    Cannot go to the doctor for a few more days due to no Vehicle! My son crashed my truck. Getting another truck or used SUV this week but until then, I'm home bound.

    Ibuprofen hasn't helped, ice, heat either. I just feel like crap and I want to sleep!

    Any suggestions besides drinking alcohol.

    Sleep sitting up. That's what I have to do with certain migraines. When you're tired enough, you'll be able to do it.

    when I lean my back up against anything it is the same as lying down. I don't know what to do. I guess stay awake until I literally pass out.

    Where exactly is this pain?

    Is is radiating from your shoulder joint down or from your shoulder blade down? And down to where?

    Which side?

    Do you still have your gall bladder?

    Left side, from my shoulder down to my forearm but most of the pain is in the entire shoulder area. Up where my shoulder blade is it feels more like if you have indigestion type sensation not pain. I did have some muscle weakness but physical threapy was successful with that, now it feels really deep down like the bone, from socket or just above socket on down.

    Hope that helps but hard to describe it. I have my gallbadder! I am being treated with Vitamin-D 50000 once a week for 8 weeks. Just had my 3rd pill on Monday.

    Have you had any imaging studies like an xray of the shoulder, arm, or neck?

    Does the pain change when you turn your head?

    I'm thinking that it could either be a rotator cuff issue (for which you should have an MRI), or maybe something in your neck, like a pinched nerve.

    No MRI because at first I thought it was just muscle pain. I did have very limited movement when it first happened so physical therapy was geared towards rotator cuff, but this is different type pain then when I first went into physical therapy.

    no pain when I turn my neck. I can tell you as soon as my back is leaning up against anything it is a very dull toothache type pain. It hurts.

    Tried lying on my opposite side and just as bad, tried to prop up arm, nope, used biofreeze with no help or relief. This sucks!
