    This is normal for frozen shoulder. Horrible no bearable pain for a few months. Once pain starts to go away limited motion is still there. I went and got a deep tissue massage weekly until pain was better and it helped tremendously. It hurt a little getting the massage but for about 5 days after I would be able to sleep and bear the pain. Now in state 2 and pain much better and mobility coming back. I am in my 9 th month right now and hope to be totally better soon. Good luck and try a massage, much better than surgery

    HI Lorstan, I know first hand what you are going through. This is my second frozen shoulder my last one was 4 yrs ago and lasted 11 months. This time it's my dominate arm and I'm into 4 months of this with the pain SLOWLY getting better. I have weakness from time to time , where my hand shakes and I loose strength. Nights are the worse cuz I can't find any position that gives me relief. Here in the states at least with my insurance they don't want to do anything but cortisone shot ( which I've had 2- no help) and exercise. I've started acupunctureand hopefully that will help , sometimes I get so down  The pain is so unbearable . This blog site has truly helped me to read about other only we know how debilitating this condition is.

      Hello. I am in 2nd stage so completely frozen and I have inflammation of the bursa. Had one streroid injection with approx 3 month pain relief but now back in pain. Have you started acupuncture?? I am thinking this may be a treatment option for me but not sure.

      Keep strong x

      I agree with you on this forum. I had never heard of frozen shoulder and at first kept thinking it was other problems. My husband didn't even seem to believe it hurt as bad as it did. He does now but it is hard to understand if you have never had it. I had it in both shoulders and one is almost better now after 8 months just a little pain left and need to mobility to reach behind my back. Can finally do my hair again. Good luck with yours and hope you are better soon

    OMG I have hair envy!!!! I cant wait til I can do my own hair and feel less grumpy and frumpy. 

    Ive used my friends shiatzu massage cushion with great relief from the muscles around shoulder. 

    Roll on next thawing phase please!!!

    Keep strong xx

      The completely frozen stage did not last long for me. Maybe a month so hopefully you will start thawing and any relief after being in so much pain is great. With one arm I am almost able to undo bra now also. Lol. I will never take advantage of being healthy again. Starting to work out again soon and will keep it up forever. Good luck and feel better!!
