Double ow

I’ve had some persistent pain in my left shoulder over the course of the last week. I’ve taken some anti-inflammatory medication (a fancy way to say ibuprofen), but it still hurts to lift my arm, which is also exceptionally annoying. My mom suggested I put some heat on it yesterday, which seemed to help. My step-mom recommended that I heat it a couple of times a day. Genius me decided that to get maximum coverage of the aggravated area, I should wear a tank, completely exposing my shoulder and arm to the heating pad (it has a fabric cover over it).

In case you didn’t already know, the skin on the inside of your arm is really sensitive. And you can, in fact, actually burn yourself with a heating pad.
