I just had a flare this week in my shoulder, I went to the doctor and he gave me a cortisone shot. It took away the extreme pain but it still hurt. I'm pretty sure it was brought on by stress from my job. I had a day long tension headache from hell. Yesterday I had another tension headache and left work and I think I'm fixing to get another flare. It always happens at night and on the weekends it seems like. If I do get another flare will they just give me a cortisone shot again? This doctor does not seem to understand how painful this is and has not offered any pain killers. I have taken enough naproxen and IBU to float a battleship. How many shots can you take in a short amount of time? it's 2 weeks until I have my appt with a specialist.
