6. My husband has suffered from a similar injury for about four weeks now.
:hug:" I hope you feel better very soon. He's been doing physical therapy, and it has helped. He's been diagnosed with subscapular bursitis and a tear in the muscle (under his arm) that helps control the rotator cuff. He's been miserable, and I know you have too.

:pals: Feel better soon!
