Shoulder ache

suzxray posted:
I have an issue with my right shoulder (especially when wt. exercises are involved). My shoulder has an aching "pain" and "cracking" sound anteriorly at the joint. This seems to be also causing a burning sensation posteriorly and medially at mid scapula. Even some ROM mvmts triggers these sensations. Any thoughts on what is happening?

I'm not really sure, and I could only make some guesses. I suggest that you have your doctor refer you to an orthopedist,preferably a shoulder specialist. The shoulder is a complicated joint and it takes an experienced person to evaluate. You could check out the symptom checker, http://symptoms.webmd.com/default.htm#./introView but you still ought to speak with your doctor. Good luck with it.
