I'm kind of freaking out. I had a mild yeast infection which I treated with OTC stuff, and on the back of the tube it says if you have shoulder pain contact a doctor right away... so then I googled shoulder pain and pregnancy- and it indicates a lot of pretty serious things, ectopic pregnancy, gallstones, internal bleeding, pre-eclampsia, etc.
I know it's not ectopic because I have an early u/s to make sure everything was in it's right place (unless it's twins and one of them is in there??)... I just had my BP checked and it was 110/74- normal. I don't have any symptoms of gallstones/gall bladder issues - no pain in abdomen, I eat no cholesterol- completely vegan... so IDK what it could be.
the only thing I can think of is last week I got back into my exercise routine after being pretty much off it besides walking since 5 weeks- I ran up stairs and did pushups LAST Monday, and the pushups could have torn/aggravated something, and then I did my normal power yoga classes (I've been practicing for 6 years so that seems unlikely I'd have an injury from it) every day but Tuesday last week...
anyone know or have this?? I also read pregnancy causes inflammation so if you have an old injury it can exacerbate it... I have injured this shoulder before but that was like 4 years ago! I'm seeing my midwife today so I'm definitely going to ask her.
the pain is kind of inbetween the AC joint-- the pointy part of the shoulder where your collarbone ends, but then it radiates down my arm and is sore into the bicep/tricep-- which is what worries me because that's like referred pain from somewhere else!
