    Pain: is it mnd or what?

    I'm already in serious pain because of a longstanding back problem that's kicked off. But to top it all I've had a seriously sore right shoulder blade area since yesterday. I don't remember hurting it in any way. Could this be an mnd symptom or have I done some damage without realising? Thanks all. Lynne

    Hi Lynne;

    It's not probably directly part of Mnd, but could well be one of the side issues because of poor posture and weaker muscles getting strained.

    I tend to tense quite a lot of muscles that also makes things a lot worse.

    See if you can get some phisio for the shoulder and take ibuprofen with food to reduce inflation and help with the pain.

    Hope you feel better soon.

    Love Terry

    Hello
    I have a frozen shoulder, I tried ibuprofen and it didn't work. Now they put me on Gabapentin. If this doesn't work they are saying botox injections in my shoulder.

    I have a torn tendon in the rotor cuff opposite side (left) to the new pain problem. I've had an injection in 2 places in the left shoulder. That's worn off. I see the specialist 10 a.m this Monday. He had said if that injection didn't sort it out he'd do an op' where he'd shave a bit off the bone. He thinks my tendon catches on it. I don't fancy this for obvious reasons. I couldn't save myself from falling if left arm temporarily out of action while it recovers. The right side pain does not go as high as my shoulder rotator cuff. It is intensely staying around the lower to middle of my shoulder blade. Thanks for your words of advice Terry and Chris. I'll have some ibuprofen with next meal. Lynne

    Chris. About your frozen shoulder. There is a procedure that can sort it out. An ex in-law who's a anaesthetist had it done. He obviously had some sway in getting it done. They did it under local anaesthetic (injection along shoulder somewhere) then blew air into the joint (keyhole surgery) and manipulated it to free it. He was back to work pretty soon after this. I don't think this procedure is common knowledge but worth asking about. We have such a lot to deal with. You could do without this. Good luck. Lynne
