    That sounds bad.

    Hope it has cleared up a bit now.

    Might be worth a trip to the doc:thumb:

    It might be worth visiting a chiropractor rather than a GP. Hope you get it sorted soon however that happens.

    Cortizone injection in the shoulder works a treat:thumb::thumb:

    If it works, great, but sometimes only temporary. I had a couple of cortizone treatments for a leg problem but it only treated the symptom not the cause (which turned out to be poor posture at work as a result a poorly set up work station) so didn't last.

    First time took effect within hours....second took nearly two weeks :Eeek:

    Wouldn't wish the cause or cure on anyone:RollEyes:

    Had the same problem for almost 2 years now. I can't do anything physical at all. Just waiting until I can get somewhere to get to the docs. Last 2 years have been tricky due to mothers problems.

    When it first happened I was in agony and my shoulder was seriously restricted in movement. I went onto ibuprofen and paracetamol which got it freed up and after 4-5 months was basically usable again. I can do anything that involves repetitive motions such as sanding, sweeping or washing windows as the next day I am in pain again. I also can't do anything above shoulder height.
    It clicks now and again sometimes daily and that sends pain shooting through the joint...

    You have my sympathy.

    I can't wait to get it sorted once and for all.

    Hope yours can be resolved quickly.

    You could try Kinesiology, all to do with muscles and balancing the body:thumb:

    if it is frozen shoulder it isn't muscular.
    It's an inflammation of the fluid filled 'cushion' within the joint
    The more it's moved the more the inflammation and so on which restricts movement voluntarily/subcontiously to avoid pain

    do you mean Applied kinesiology.

    That's the practise... kinesiology is the study of.

    Regardless...it won't work as fast or effectively as a cortisone injection.

    And believe me, you want it fast. :Laughing:

    Alternative to injection is brandy or red wine in large quantities .:BigGrin:

    If its a frozen shoulder you have my sympathy as it is very painful and debilatiting. Mine was eventually cured with some magnetic therapy which the physio organised. It was just amazing and worked very quickly so after months of pain and not being able to do simple things with my right arm I had almost full movement again.

    It could be due to a number of things...impingement, rotator cuff tear, calcium deposits, arthritis, neck problems...etc. An injection of local anaesthetic and steroid may settle things down, but you may require an ultrasound scan to see what the problem is...A course of physiotherapy is also recommended a week or so after injection...Sometimes the effects of the injection can last for months, sometimes it does not work at all, and sometimes you may need a further injection...Hope you get sorted out soon
