For the last few weeks my left shoulder has felt sore and lacks range of motion. I am not sure if I just bruised myself repeatedly by sleeping on it funny or can someone dislocate their arm without realizing it?

How common is allergy to sunflower seeds? I stopped eating them and my symptoms  of prostatitis have improved.

I am 33 and male.

Hi, James,

I am a pediatrician.  I see people less than 20.

It would really be impossible to dislocate your shoulder without an obvious injury.

To relate symptoms of prostatitis, and I'm not really sure what they would be at your age, to sunflower seeds, is a stretch.  If the symptoms are gone, it might be reasonable to start sunflower seeds again and see what happens.

Good luck, Dr. Olson

I would be happy to attempt to answer any questions about general pediatric topics, either medical issues or behavioral issues. This would include all the various questions one receives in a busy pediatric practice. I`m a board certified pediatrician in northern Michigan and have been in practice for over 15 years. I enjoy the teaching role I have in our practice and would enjoy the opportunity to help others with their pediatric problems.
