    I can relate. I was in an accident that messed up my shoulder( collar bone) was injuried. At the time I was I in fifth grade and just in a sling, didn't go to my doctor for tests and rehab for nearly fifteen years. So yeah I can relate, other people can't feel your pain and many do think you are imagining everything.
