He has a massive bruise forming on his shoulder, I have had ice on it, but he says that his arm feels numb, especially the top part, from elbow up to shoulder,and that it's sore when he moves it. He was very upset, have given him some calpol and ice pack, I don't think he has broken anything though.

numbness doesn;t sound good tho.

plus, moving it doesn;t make any difference. when DD2 broke and dislocated her elbow, it took us (meblush) 10hrs to realise that something really was wrong as she could move it, and her hand, she just complained of pins and needles, and the first aider at school said that meant her 'funny bone' was knocked (and I believed her rather than trust my judgement).

I would go to A&E TBH.

Oh dear, your poor DS. I think it is definitely worth going to A&E to get it checked out.
