Our expert says:
a "small subtle tear " should not cause the degree of intense pain you are experiencing- it sounds like something else: Typically the most painful conditions around the shoulder in a person of your age are:
-make sure there is no tumour
-referred pain from the neck
Have a look at our website: www.shoulderinstitute.co.za and specificallyat the above-mentioned conditions. I would suggest that you see a spcecialist to verify the diagnosis
