Shoulder pain seems to be common, there may be other problems behind it
1. Left shoulder pain:
In most cases, left shoulder pain is related to shoulder disease, shoulder strain and other factors, but in some special cases, it may also be a signal of the arrival of cardiovascular disease.
For example, before the onset of myocardial infarction, patients may have atypical pain manifestations, including left shoulder pain, toothache, jaw pain, and so on.
The reason for this is that the surface of the heart is covered with a large number of sympathetic and parasympathetic nerves. The pain will be transmitted to the brain along with the nervous system. During this process, the pain can radiate to other spinal cord regions, and then shoulder pain will appear.
Under normal circumstances, shoulder pain caused by cardiogenic problems often appears suddenly after intense mood swings and strenuous exercise. The pain can last for about 1-20 minutes. After proper rest or mouth nitroglycerin, the pain can be gradually Relief, which is different from frozen shoulder;
2. Right shoulder pain:
Right shoulder pain may be related to cholecystitis, especially during the onset of acute cholecystitis, it will stimulate the right phrenic nerve endings of the patient.
When the nerve endings are stimulated and transmitted to the fourth cervical ganglion through the phrenic nerve, misjudgments may occur in the cerebral cortex, resulting in abnormal right shoulder pain.
In addition to cholecystitis, when a patient develops liver cancer, once the liver cancer invades the pleura and peritoneum and compresses the nerve plexus, it will also cause radiation pain in the right shoulder;
3. The more you press the shoulder, the more painful it is:
Under normal circumstances, when you feel tired or shoulder pain, it will be gradually relieved by appropriate activities or massage.
On the contrary, if the shoulder becomes more painful the more you press it, or if you experience severe pain soon after the massage, this may be related to other neck and shoulder diseases;
For example, the nerve root type cervical spondylosis caused by nerve root edema, the patient will have severe shoulder pain during the acute attack, if the patient blindly massages and massages at this time, it can aggravate the edema symptom and cause the condition to worsen;
4. Inexplicable shoulder pain:
As mentioned above, the pain in the development of liver cancer can radiate to the right shoulder. In addition, after lung cancer compresses the brachial plexus, it can also cause abnormal pain in the shoulder on the cancerous side.
In addition, the cancer of internal organs progresses to the middle and late stages, and bone metastases can occur to varying degrees. The scapula is just a common site of bone metastasis. Once bone metastasis occurs, it can cause severe bone pain, osteolytic destruction and pathological fractures. It can also cause patients to experience shoulder pain symptoms.
Therefore, if you feel shoulder pain in daily life, do not get better or symptoms disappear after taking painkillers, or even feel that the pain is getting more and more serious, in this case, no matter what the disease is, you need to seek medical examination as soon as possible. Inform the doctor about his disease history and family history in detail, and then start relevant examinations, and then treat symptomatically until the real cause of the shoulder pain is confirmed.
