Fell and hit back, throbbing pain in shoulder and back. Took Ibuprofen and heat packs. Is it long term damage?
Hi, I landed really badly today at work, only a couple of feet but I was so winded and in so much pain that I could hardly breath and rolled on the floor. Took me a good 15 mins to recover but my back is still throbbing now in between my shoulder blades. Bath, heat pack and ibuprofen have been taken. Have I done long term damage?
hope now u will be a bit better,pl go for x ray on urgent basis,it is must.see ortho surgeon there.tab u have taken is good.pl do rest to recover yours back.only x ray can explain the late effects --if any
