Is an aching shoulder a sign of a blocked ventricular shunt.?

I always wondered as I remember being on work experience when I was 15 having a really bad aching shoulder.  6 months later I was seriously ill.  It could have been just growing pains but I'm wondering now.  It would be great to know.

    If your shunt was blocked, you would have known that was the cause as they should have explained it to you or your parents. There is no way for us to retroactively make any sensible comment on your case as an aching shoulder could be due to hundreds of reasons.

    Could be that your shoulder was doing things in work experience that it did not do before.   Generally things are not that simple that you can say that an aching shoulder means blocked ventricular shunt.   Should have asked your doctor at the time
