Left shoulder pain after eating or drinking

My shoulder hurts when I eat fruits. I went through the process of elimination and came up with watermelon, grapes, apples and pineapple cause me continuous dull pain in my left shoulder.

I am waiting on the result of my MRI of the neck and shoulder, but Dr's don't understand why I am experiencing pain in my shoulder. My next appointment with a Nuerological Surgeon is scheduled for Monday 10/31/22 and I will let them know that it has to be the fruit. I just think it's odd and painful that this is happening to me. People think I am crazy. I also have Discoid Lupus, Acid reflux and Nreve damage. Not sure if any of this is contributing to my symptoms but I'd like to find out.

Welcome @jayrob624. It does sound a bit crazy, doesn't it. But you're not alone. I have moved your post about feeling pain in your shoulder after eating to this existing discussion:

Interesting that your trigger appears to be specifically fruit. Do you experience similar pain with any other foods, liquids, or activities?
