I managed to dislocate my shoulder in my sleep last night. I’ve recently taken to sleeping on my side with my arm under my pillow and my head on top of my pillow and I’ve discovered that that’s not as sensible as it sounds. You see my joints are rather flexible and its not unusual for me to hear a crunching sound and then sink into the bed a little when I lie on my side but with my arm above my head the additional pressure caused my shoulder joint to hyperflex and sort of pop out during the night.
I woke up with a throbbing shoulder and unable to move my arm in the slightest. I actually had to scoop it up with my remaining good arm and sort of shove it back where it was supposed to be and hold it in front of me where it didn’t hurt as much.
This now officially takes over the dislocating shoulder whilst trying on a top in a store changeroom incident as the most stupid way I’ve injured myself.
