So, I've been thinking about my odd shoulders. Which is what I do. Had I been indoctrinated to medicine, I would be a diagnostician. Hell, a more thorough education in any one thing and I would be one of those annoying people who worries at problems until they are fixed, and fixes them. Instead, I'm a generalist, an Encyclopedia Brown, but with no deep skill-set.
Still, when I get a good question, my brain will not let it go. Being told that the bony anatomy of my shoulder is probably "interesting" and being asked how long it's been like that, has stuck stickily, and will not let go. I'm sure I have always been like this. I could not put my arms out to my sides to do push-ups in Basic, but had to hold them more or less in front of me. Which got smartass comments from the Drill Sergeants, but because I could do them otherwise to form, they shrugged and counted them. Last night, lying in bed on my back, I noticed my hands did not readily fall with my palm up. That would be Anatomical Position, corpse pose, supposedly relaxed, which always took effort for me.
If my shoulders are "interesting" that might be why. Lacking normal external rotation, my palms most easily rest turned in, or down. Leading me to wonder if whatever* caused my fetal feet to turn in, might also have turned in my shoulder girdle. Never noticed, not obvious, never caused any problems, until now. Even now, since the joint is stable, I'll get the soreness worked out. I'm not about to let any surgeon mess with it.
We all have such oddities. Some clear, some problematic, some nearly invisible, some invisible without specific and intrusive examination. Unevenness, twists and interesting formations.
*Other than the fact that I was a large (8lb,10oz), long baby with a very small (4'11") mum.
