Diagnosed with tendonitus

Posted , 5 users are following.

i have severe pain in the sides of both arms, the outside of both arms just below the shoulder muscles (not actually in the shoulder). The pain happens when I try to stretch or twist the arm and I feel not careful will ramp up to the extreme. Has anyone knowledge or advice on this particular pain symptom of calcific tendonitus (if it is indeed that)? Many thanks.

    Hi 

        I have been told the same thing among other things as I need a shoulder replacement due to I have no joint left after years of impingement also my rotator cuff is torn but they say due to my age I am too young for my shoulder replacement.

      The pain I have is like the ulner nerve is trapped under the muscle band at the side of the arm. I have no pain or problems with the muscles in the arms and they have full strength. It's just when I get an arm in the wrong position it is painful at that point probably referred down from the tendon above inside the shoulder.

    Happyhacker,

         Hi my name is Eva, I had to take myself to the Emergency Room last Wednesday because I was having such shoulder pain and didn't know what was going on but for 3 nights straight I got about 9 hours sleep in those 3 days and when I got there they did x-rays and the doctor ask me if I had ever dislocated my shoulder which back in March or April I had dislocated my shoulder when I went to get something off a shelf at a local store I shop at, there was a rug and for the size of the rug I thought there couldn't be much to it for the price that was marked so I was getting it off the shelf and it was heavier than I thought it would be so the full force of the weight caused me to strain my shoulder, later that day I noticed that my shoulder was really hurting pretty bad so I went to see my Chiropractor and I told him what had happened and that I thought it was out of place and sure enuogh it was, so he put it back into place for me. I had some soreness for a while but never anything too bad. I told the doctor at the hospital what had happened back then but had primarily been alright and I told him that I had fallen at work in June and I had to go for x-rays on my hand and they said I had fractured it and I had been going to a hand specialist because he said it wasn't fractured and I started having pain radiating up my arm and then I started having pain in my shoulder at the socket joint and also along the backside of my shoulder blade and in the front around my collarbone and going up into my neck, they did an x-ray on my shoulder and he said I either had bad Arthritis settle in my shoulder or tendinitis or bursitis, or from what the x-rays were showing could be damage to the tendon's surrounding my rotator cuff but an MRI would show more than an x-ray because it would capture the soft tissue instead of bone. I have problems with reaching around in front of my body with that arm because of the pain that accompanies it. I'm suppose to go see a second opinion doctor in November and he said to mention it to the second opinion doctor because once you dislocate your shoulder then it's not hard to injure it and that the fall could've caused what's going on with my shoulder. I don't know. It will be nice when I finally find out. I wish you all the luck in the world and keep us updated on your condition.

    Yes, thanks eve I did pull my collar bone out of place s few years ago but it repaired itself. Anyway I have the pain both sides so the Dr. May be right strange though it's happening Botha sides and I wonder if it's related to heart problems I seem to be having. 

    Still waiting for for someone to tell us about Calcific Tendonitus because I thought that condition would cause pain in the actual shoulder and not only a bit lower down in the arm!
