Hi everyone - I dislocated my shoulder 2 weeks ago in a bad fall and now I have severe arm and hand pain (probably nerve pain ). Even the narcotics don't help much. I'm keeping the shoulder immobilized as directed and it didn't hurt much until the last few days, but now it's bad. Any suggestions?

Dislocated shoulder and arm pain
I also dislocated my right shoulder two weeks ago. It popped back into place within 5 minutes. I dislocated the same shoulder about 8 years ago. I still have a lot of pain in my upper right arm. How long will this last or is it something more serious?
