Shoulder and back pain?

It sounds like you are very tense and that may be causing your shoulder and back pain. Discomfort sleeping, soreness, swelling etc all play a factor in your healing process. You may need to take a muscle relaxer to help you relax. Hang in there and each day should get better.
