<p>No it happened the first weekend in August when I was outback canoe camping.  I slipped on a rock and actually didn't hurt myself other than feelng a pop in my shoulder and then weakness. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>It's gotten worse and so much worse that a week ago I couldn't sleep at night.  Got some anit-inflammatories from the clinic, then saw my MD yesterday for something else and got the T3s.  Saw a Physio today.  Codeine and I don't agree, let's just put it that way.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>But I need sleep!</p>

<p>I'm allergic to coedine (continuum of hives to hallucinations, depending on the dose).  Most other "major" painkillers make me barf.  I don't know how anyone gets addicted to them!</p>

<p>Same here with pain killers.  Found out the hard way that I'm allergic to tylenol 3's.  Several years ago when I was really sick, I was given percocet.  I was allowed to take 2 every 4hrs.  1/2 every 6hrs was more than enough!!!  I got major stoned on that little!</p>

<p>I have had this happen a couple years ago. Good luck...my shoulder is still screwed but the not being able to sleep phase only lasted 3 or 4 months. I still cant swim or do pushups or any other shoulder heavy working out.</p>

<p>I knew about codeine and the *ahem* regularity issues, I've had codeine before, but I never knew about the nausea.  Gack!</p>

<p>I went in for PT (my HMO refused to do an MRi to confirm a tear and refused to consider surgery) and eventually it got better but its nowhere near 100% and I have to baby it (ie no swimming :().</p>
<p> </p>
<p>And I seem to have reinjured it slightly last week in circuit training...I now have shooting pains when I try to put a shirt on.</p>

<p> Ask  doc about Voltaren  ( generic is Diclofenac) which is a  24  hour time release  ibuprofen.  It works great for my crunchy knees and when they get really bad  the doc has me take it 2x a day instead ( equivalent to the 800mg advils) but easier on the stomach and less need to remember if you took it or not !</p>
<p> Shoulder injuries are a bear ( <span style="font-size:8px;">I'msorryforthepun.. sort of .</span> )<img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="width:15px;height:14px;" title=""></p>

<p>Hi Grizz....I just got back from my vacation. Canoeing in the Gatineaus was involved.</p>
<p>So was a rotator cuff injury...</p>
<p>As well as an inability to sleep....</p>
<p>And a trip to the hospital...</p>
<p>Toradol is the best!!! But they injected it into my other shoulder....not something I can take home.</p>
<p>And T3's....but I only take them before bed & deal with the pain during the day.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Seeing physio later this week.</p>

<p>Don't worry about it Grizz. I tore my left rotator cuff in 1978 and it's healing up nicely. By 2000 I could raise my arm above my head.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I have a slight tear in my right shoulder and it's just pretty annoying. However, when I sleep on that side it is really stiff and sore till about noon the next day.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Can't wait to get really old.  :D</p>
