<p> I went to doc because I was having slight discomfort when moving my arm in certain ways? He did MRI and said I had a small tear in the bursi sac. gave me an injection and therapy for about six weeks? But once therapy was done, I went down hill fast! Pain became horrible! Certain movements would send sharp pains down the whole length of my arm and it would take a bit to recover? I never knew when this would occur! The shoulder, elbow and wrist areas always had a gnawing achy feeling! But nights are the worse! Pain waking me up every 30 minutes! Laying on the shoulder was not a good idea! So all this pain led me back to doc! He did another MRI, which showed up that the ball joint of the shoulder was "highly inflamed". His words! And then he said my range of motion was terrible? Then he said I may get frozen shoulder and he needed to give me a shot in that joint to calm the inflamation. That sucker hurt! But it has seemed to help with lot of the serveir pain? I still hurt but not like before the shot. So yes! If the shoulder is highly inflamed, it will show up on MRI. And the shot has helped me, but can't say how long that will last. I think when the pain first started a year ago, that was the onset of this stupid disease but it was misdiagnoise then. So hoping I will done with it soon! Hope all goes well with you! I go back to doc on 19 of Feb to see the next step!</p>

<p> JJ, Sorry to hear about your problems. I found that for several months I could not put on T-shirts, nothing but button ups and large at that. People try different things, but only suggestion is to get a cortisone shot or two. Anything to get the inflammation under control. Most people find that pain meds aren't that effective. It is a serious pain. </p>

<p> Sorry to hear your going thru this. I had frozen shoulder diagnosed September 2013. I'm finally feeling normal again. Everything you discribed is what I had. I injured it and never let it recover and developed this awful condition. I had winged scapula and a slight tear to my pectoral muscles with frozen shoulder. My arm was stuck. I could only lift chest high. I then began freezing up in my good should in April 2014. I finally went to the Dr and he prescribed physical therapy. What a difference this has made. I went thru 3 different physical therapist before I found the right one.</p>
<p>When I feel it flare up or ache. I take 1 tsp of turmeric a day for a couple of days and it brings the inflammation down. I used the stretchy bands every other day. And the pulley everyday. Do the pulley sitting down facing away from it. I was told normal recovery for this injury is 16 months. Just don't lift anything heavy. And know when to stop. Stretching when ever possible helps. Also I was a vegetarian when this happened. Lack of protein would not let me heal. I now eat animal meat and fish. I am 5' and weigh 105. Take a multivitamin and glucosamine and vitamin d. Breathe from your gut to send oxygen to your repairing body. Hope this helps. Find a good physical therapist and be patient. If nothing showed up in your mri then you probably need physical therapy. I can lift my arm up now. It takes some time. Time will heal.</p>

<p>So... </p>
<p>I am super active, just turned 40, and I am a male. I was working out 5 times a week, trying to keep pace with our younger crowd at work. I can still do some stuff without pains, but then there are some sharp searing pains, some dull & deep pains, and some pains that feel more like muscular pains.</p>
<p>I still try to keep busy, and limit my movements, but I really dotn think I should be, I think it necessary to keep on moving, into the edge of unbearable. </p>
<p>I have had dry needle therapy a few times now seems to help, but there's associated residual pain with that. and jabbing with the needle is not the safest thing I can think of. I was taking Meloxicam, until this Rx ends but it seems that it isnt doing much</p>
<p>Is anyone working just as hard as they were working out before with the pain? </p>
<p>If it is safe and just a matter of pain, I don't want to quit working out and let my shoulder completely ratchet down. </p>
<p>So My questions are:</p>
<p>What kind of treatment has worked for you?</p>
<p>What supplements or vitamins have you had luck with, if any?</p>
<p>My shoulder feels weak, and flimsy, like it could just buckle... has anyone experienced this?</p>
<p>Were you able to see anything on the MRI?</p>
<p>It hurts to put on shirts or uniforms for work, have you found any particular stretch or exercise to relieve this pain?</p>
<p>Thanks !! Please share your answers! </p>
