Pain in the arm and shoulder joint after a fall. What should I do?

Hi Doc,two months back I fell down from bath tub while cleaning,in the affected area to avoid head injury I took my body weight on my right hand . in the sense I landed on the floor on my right hand. I was asked to useDiclofenac in the affected area and Naproxen 1 tablet twice daily for a week. I don t have continuous pain, but I am not comfortable or feel strong in my right arm [arm and shoulder joint] mainly when I get up in the morning I feel slight pain in different areas on diff. days. Can you help me to identity the reason.

hi.. thanks for using HCM..
you had a fall and sustained injury to the right arm.. now you have on and off pain, you have not mentioned about any swelling/deformity of the limb, hence possibility of fracture is ruled out..
the pain you are experienced could be due to muscle sprain, see a physiotherapist..
all the very best...
