Shoulder pain could be attributed to poor sitting position. Use an ergonomic chair or something. Remember, we're supposed to take 10min break every hour we spent in front of the computer. If you're overdoing it, these stuff will happen.

 

Yes, this is an answer I was looking for. What I really want to know is which way do I have to move to improve my sitting position? I think I'm sitting too low because my previous chair was a lot higher.

 

I know taking breaks is important, but I kinda overdid it anyways. Now I just want to find a position that would allow me to work normally in the future without the shoulder pain.

 

sleep it off

Sleep is your best option. Any of the above are just temporary fixes.

 

Sleeping doesn't really help because the pain comes back when I continue working.

 

I'd suggest doing some stretching exercises. 

 

I don't really know which way to stretch, but I've tried this and thought that it'll only make it worse.

i wouldnt mess around with your calf, cuz your Achilles may be next

It honestly doesn't hurt too much as long as I take it easy working out. Kinda sucks for running though, since I live in the country on dirt roads.

A teaspoon of concrete every morning in your coffee should fix it right up.

 

But seriously more than likely a little bit of RSI. Start off by reading the health warning on the bottom of your keyboard, as most have a health warning about RSI and ways to prevent. 

 

It could be RSI, but more likely it's just my bad sitting position.

 

Lots of trolls.

I say sleep it off and by morning hopefully it's good. I have a past collar bone crack and it never really healed right. So it'll hurt every now and then, but sometimes I just have to suck it up. I also have a torn calf muscle injury from 2 years ago that will randomly hurt at night.

overall most the time it's a suck it up kind of pain.

 

I kinda know how you feel. Sometimes one of my wrists starts aching so badly I can't even sleep. I don't know if it's because I've broken both of them at one point or if it's just tenosynovitis or something. The sucky thing is that the pain can last several days.

I just take it day by day. Working out is fun for me, but can extremely painful with my collar one. I try to workout my shoulders a lot less. I hope it'll stop hurting for you man!

I might also add, monitor screen should be on eye-level (better if you have an monitor arm/mount so you can move it around) and desk height should be same level with your elbow while sitting down. GL!

Does the monitor height actually make a difference? I use IPS panels so I can stare at them from any angle.

 

My desk is self made(standard height of about 29" or exactly 75cm) so I've been thinkg about making a shelf for my monitors and I already built a shelf on top of my monitors, so it's the only way to get them any higher.

 

Thanks man!

I think it contributes to eye-strain (not just the LED; use f.lux only if you don't work that is color-sensitive). I think it's more about comfort levels, but I've read and experience that, if my setup isn't right, I squirm a lot while sitting down. Also note, depending on your body type, you may need a different kind of chair support, like more space or arch support etc.

dude more fluid = more pain

 

wait also hes not telling us exactly hurts. 

Heat increases the bloodflow in the area and that's how body handles inflammation itself. Basically you're just helping out your own immune system.

 

Oh, and that said. Take ibuprofen. If 800mg doesnt work, add up to 1g of paracetamol. And do not take even two days in a row. Muscle relaxant should also be beneficial, but you need prescription for those.


 When the going gets weirdthe weird turn pro.

Snip

I took 400mg of ibuprofen and went to bed an hour ago. Still hasn't helped much. And that's pretty much all the drugs I have. Just gonna rest for a while. Thanks for the help guys.

Have you tried turn it off and on again? But seriously speaking, walking is good option and or sleep.

What if I really have to work? I know there are a lot of people that do office work for eight hours a day, five days a week. How do those people cope with it?

 

A lot of exercise and stretches.

 

Yes, this is an answer I was looking for. What I really want to know is which way do I have to move to improve my sitting position? I think I'm sitting too low because my previous chair was a lot higher.

Just be careful, don't over extend. If you don't have full mobility don't push it all the way. Just slowly start building the area up.

I am not a physio I can only speak of my own encounters with them and the solutions that have worked for me.

 

I suffer with shoulder pain, especially if I don't exercise and I can tremendous wrist pain while working with a keyboard for a long time. (Part of why I no longer want to work in it), Day9's stretches helped me a lot , nice that you can do most at your desk as well.

 

They other thing is frequency. If you haven't stretched before don't start stretching every 5 minutes :P.

 

Good luck, I hope you feel better.

First off, get some lower lumbar support. a cylinder about the width of a soda bottle behind the L4/L5 will help


Second, go to the doctor. It could be something as simple as bad posture, it could be something as serious as cancer. If it's to the point where you can't work anymore, you should go to the doctor.
