I've had pain for the past 6 weeks in my upper arm and thought I had initially slept funny on it or overdone it at work. Wen to the doctors this week who completed physical examination and then referred me for an ultrasound for further investigation. 24 hours later, I'm in A&E as I no longer have full movement of my right arm.
X-ray shows calcific tendonitis. Ultrasound for more detail won't be for 8 weeks and physio is in 2 weeks time. I have been given a couple of days supply of Naproxen and already have codeine at home for the pain.
Has anyone had this/have got it? Is there anything I should be doing to help myself?
I can sit at a computer and type but that's about it- unless I want to be screaming in agony. I can't shower, dress or eat with that arm. I am unable to drive also. I have arranged for someone to give me a lift into work as I don't want to take time off. Doctor has not given me any information and said it can be a long process!
