I am not totally sure what is wrong with my shoulder. The Dr wrote impingement on the order for PT. He told me there was a "hook" like a bird's beak on my acromion. This showed up on the x-ray. The PT helped with SOME of my pain/problems. I improved with certain movements but 2 other movements(not sure which ones, just told that by the PT assistant) had no improvement at all. I was given the injection in my shoulder last week. I'm not sure if it's helping or not. I am a little better but now the pain is different. It is hurting more when I move my arm with something in my hand as in putting dishes away or if I have to press, like cleaning the bathtub. My range of motion that was stopped at 90 degrees on the painful arc test. I am able to move my arm in most ways except straight up from the side (painful arc test). I see the Dr in a week or two and I know from past experience he'll suggest surgery. At this point I'm not even sure what it is. Maybe impingement, maybe rotor cuff, maybe nothing(?). Just looking for your views on what you would do.
PS, it is making my daily activities more stressful from the pain. The pain is not excruciating, just more annoying, limiting.
