My right shoulder is swollen and i cant really bend it at the elbow. The pain is internal and only hurts when i move my arm.
Hi, i need some more information from you. So please provide as elaborate data as possilble .I suspect that the pain in the arm and shoulder could be due to soft tissue impingement. An xray of the shoulder joint and cervical spine is needed to rule out any other causes producing pain in your shoulder and arm. A detailed clinical examination is necessary to establish the correct cause of your pain.

My left arm keeps going numb on the outside of my elbow..why?
hi thanks for using healthcare magic I think it due to nerve compression.

Go for physiotherapy and it would help u to overcome the problem. thanks
