Collarbone Pain

Collarbone Pain

Have any of you ever experienced pain around your collarbone area? I have been experiencing terrible pain that is sometimes on one side, sometimes on both sides, but is always there. Ibuprofen helps. I don't think it's a fracture because I haven't fallen or done anything to account for that. Any thoughts or experience with this would be appreciated!!

Girl…been having the collarbone, neck and shoulders ache going on a month. Thankfully the pain is subsiding although at times I feel like my arms are disconnecting at the shoulders. I use extra pillows to prop me up, that does the trick for me.

@A MyLupusTeam Member I had forgotten it was you that talked about collarbone pain but I was keeping my eye out. I remembered a couple other things I do to flex and lubricate my collarbones.
•Shrug shoulders high then push them down strongly. Your sternum should raise a little as you reach the bottom of the movement.
•Relax hands on lap below belly. Curve shoulders to front, arms will rotate in so elbows are forward and shoulder blades (scapulas) move away from spine. Press shoulders to rear like your squeezing scapulas together.
Repeat multiple times (10?) to loosen and lubricate the joints.
•When you do the plank thing at sink it’s more like a standing push-up against the sink/counter

Thanks so much @A MyLupusTeam Member. I'm going to try the videos and the sink /counter plank later. That's so funny you mention raising the shoulders because my pilates teacher has to remind me at least twice a session to release my shoulders. She says mine live up my ears. 🤣 Thanks again!!!

I look at the joints there like all the others, they need to be flexed to work out the soreness and stiffness. Have you done yoga before? Can you get up and down from the ground or do you need to do it in bed, chair…?
