Been dealing with a labral tear in my shoulder for the past 3 years. Doctor said it would require surgery and 2-3 months off work. I've just been dealing with it because I can't afford to take that much time off.
It seems to be bearable in the warmer months, but as soon as the temps drop below 40 or so it hurts like hell until it warms back up. Some days it feels like it's just hanging there.
I've had cortisone shots and anti-inflammatory meds and it doesn't touch it.
