Broken distal radius and ulna at the wrist. The other arm is paining, History of fibromyalgia, hepatitis C and osteoporosis. Pain the arm due to broken bones?

I broke my distal radius and shattered the ulna at the wrist . I have been in a long arm cast the first 2 weeks and short cast for 4 weeks. This is my dominate arm. Now my left arm and shoulder is hurting like crazy! I have Hepatitis C , Fibromyalgia , and Osteoporosis (4.6) on the scale. Is this hurting a combination of all my problems or just strain from using my left arm so much??? Thanks in advance for any answers!!

Thanks for writing to us.
The pain in your left shoulder and arm could be related to an overuse but any pathology like frozen shoulder must be ruled out after a proper examination. You can get pain killers and muscle relaxants prescribed from your orthopedician for relief.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
