    A Question

    Hello :>

    My name is Rikku, I'm 20 yrs old and I broke my left shoulder/collar when I was 9. And lately I get spasms there, like really painful, omg, it spreads all the way from my shoulder to my neck type pain. It's not like a regular thing, it just comes and goes on its own and it's been going on for about maybe a yr or two. My last spasm was yesterday. All I did was turn around and it hit me. It hurt, all I could do was hold on to my shoulder and wait for the pain to pass. When it does pass, it's like nothing even happened. My arm is fine, I don't feel like I was just stabbed. So I'm just wondering, is it normal to be having this type of pain after breaking bones?
