You may find that the fracture was caused by the muscular contractions during the seizure (all normal muscular control is removed hence freeing the latent power of the muscle which can be up to three times your normal strength). This is why people with learning difficulties can lash out with immense force - they haven't learned the muscular control we have.
Have to agree with Myranda, rotator cuff injuries suck. Didn't do mine too badly but sleeping was a huge issue - one wrong move and I would be sitting bolt upright in bed wondering who had put the red hot poker through my shoulder!
BTW for doing the muscle rub, invest in a box of latex (or nitrile) gloves and use them for rubbing it in. Saves a lot of pain especially if you go to the loo and still have some of the rub on your hands - imagine a blow torch on the 'nads.
More than likely the reason, tho' it still strikes me as odd only the one shoulder was involved, and not even on my right/favoured arm which I would have expected to be the shoulder affected.
I've only slipped up once regarding washing the muscle rub off my hands.........when I later rubbed my eye. There wasn't much came in contact with my eye and I quickly learned to make sure my hands were thoroughly washed after applying the rub.
Ditto on the sleeping, I'm a very, very light sleeper to start with so all this has been horrendous. I'm really looking forward to the day I catch up on all this interrupted sleep by oversleeping..............but not tonight so I miss tomorrows appt at the fracture clinic.

Thanks Mike, I'm getting there slowly, today has been the best day yet regarding pain which is something to be grateful for.
