It sounds a whole lot like Rheumatoid Arthritis, sometimes called RA. Google it and see if your symptoms are similar and if they are, see a doctor or RA specialist immediately. Quick intervention is key to stopping joint deterioration before it causes permanent damage and eventually deformation of the joints. My very healthy 61 year old mom suffered seemingly unconnected pains in her shoulders, neck, hips, feet & hands for 5 years prior to diagnosis. Initially, due to her problems gripping things, such as a coffee cup, she was diagnosed with regular arthritis and told to take Tylenol. Luckily, she didn't give up and was finally correctly diagnosed 5 years later. Hers was still considered mild when it was diagnosed and with treatment - steroids, then a monthly infusion similar in style but not drug to chemotherapy and methotrexate (not fun but necessary) she is almost pain free for 2 years now. She has to take a monthly Humira injection and stay on top of it, watch her stress levels because stress can cause the deterioration to begin again but it is effectively in "remission".
On the other hand my brother in law who was a lifelong heavy drinker was diagnosed shortly after he developed pain, he received similar treatment. Due to the nature of the medications for RA he was told he must stop drinking, he did not, he developed scerosis (sp) of the liver which was imminent anyway due to his lifestyle but the RA treatment helped it along, he survived less than a year and died two weeks before his 51st birthday from advanced liver cancer. Moral of the story, DO NOT DRINK with RA drugs!!
I wish you good luck in finding a correct diagnosis, please do not construe my answer as definitive medical advice, as I am only relating my experiences with RA which seems similar to what you are describing.
If it is only the joint, you would find an orthopedic doctor who specializes in shoulders.
ball an socket joint
Ball and socket joint
Im having joint pain in my shoulders
Both are a ball and socket type of joint.
The shoulders and the hips.
Because the shoulder joint is formed from a ball-and-socket joint which is the only multiaxial joint (this joint is found in the shoulders and hips.)
The human body has two pivot joints. One is in the shoulders as the glenohumeral joint, and the other is in the hip as the iliofemoral joint. Other than that I do not know what else could be considered a pivot.
The hips and shoulders
knee is patella and shoulder is scapulla
shoulders, hips ,and knees
Shoulders and hips. Perfect examples.
Hips, and shoulders are two of them.
The structure of the ball and socket joint is :-in this joint the one end of the bone fits into the other (socket) .This joint allows movement in all directions. It is present in our hips and shoulders.
shoulders,arms,hips, and thighs/femur
4, shoulders & hips.
A ball and socket joint is a joint that can move all around, the joint is not limited to move in a certain way. For example a ball and socket joints on your body include; your shoulders, your ankels, & your wrists.
The shoulder joint is a ball and socket joint, in which the ball at the end of the humerus attaches to the socket in the scapula, while the knee is a plane joint, where the patella slides above the femur, tibia, and fibula.
No, the only examples of ball and socket joints I can think of in the human body are the shoulders and hips. The joint at the apex of the neck is a pivot joint.
Hmmm, lets ee. Elbows, shoulders, knees, fingers, toes....
