You can have musculoskeletal pain because your pain occurs in particular movement. You can be prescribed non steroid anti inflammatory drug for five days. Hot compress can be beneficial in relieving pain. Avoid strenous activities. Take 8 hour proper sleep. I suggest you consult physician once for examination.

I was dropped accidentally on cement and landed on my right shoulder and right butt-kind of on the side. The pain is bad and constant and really hurts the more I stand just on my right leg. Since I ve received cortizone shots in my shoulder...cakcific tendinitis - I think this pain is as a result of same injury but no one seems to know which muscle, tendons etc are causing the pain. Help! Thank you

I am in Bali and went to the Sanger monkey forest. I monkey jumped on my shoulder which I found painful and the time but could not see any cuts. Later in the day I could some red marks and then a very tiny scratch. Not sure what to do. Have not had the rabies shot.
