I have a damaged rotator cuff

I thought that my shoulder was acting up again but last night my armed seemed to get worse and I was in so much pain that I decided to go to the doctor this morning.


Last night I could not play chess with my right arm.  Three days earlier I noticed no problems.


Today I could not extend my arm to put my key in the ignition of my car.


Sometime late last week I was having trouble with the trunk of my car because the mechanism that helps you lift it has broken.  I drove all over town looking for a place to repair it.  Anyhow, the trunk got away from me and hit me the in shoulder.  Today my doctor noticed a small bruise.  I didn’t even realize that I had a bruise.


I had an x-ray to see if I have hairline fracture, which I don’t.


The doctor has prescribed medicine and thinks that it might take 10 days before it starts to get better.
