So some of you know that I've been dealing with a gimpy left shoulder since the middle of the summer. (my lower back has been achy lately but that's more acute than cronic) I thought the shoulder problem was an old hockey injury and the shoulder was finally giving up on me. I went to the doctor recently and he prescribed some meds for it.
Now last night, I'm watching the game at a friend's house and the shoulder is achy. So I start rubbing it and on top where my trap muscles meet my shoulder I feel what I think is a knot in the muscle(s). I notice I don't have that on the other shoulder. So I use a little effort and rub the knot until it goes away. It did hurt a little bit, but guess what??? I can move my shoulder through the entire range now with no pain or inpingment! Woo Whooo
But here's the rub..... I wake up this morning and I've got this jumbo egg sized lump on top off my shoulder where the knot was. No pain..just a big *ss lump. My coworkers think I had a cyst and rubbed it hard enough to break it up. The shoulder still feels good, but I'm not sure what to do about the lump thingie.
