User :   hello?
Doctor :   hi
Doctor :   how can i help you
User :   I ran down a hill while on a hike on some trails, When I fell, I dislocated my shoulder. When I got up, I located it back, but then I blacked out and couldn't feel my arm. Now (6 months later) my tendon on my lower bicep won't stop swelling. I thought I tore my ligaments, could it be something else?
