Hydrodistension for frozen shoulder

Posted , 2 users are following.

I've had hydrodistension this morning for the second time. The first, in my left shoulder, was uncomfortable but when I got home I was ok. This morning I had it in the right shoulder but 6 hours later, my arm, down to my fingers, is tingling and numb. WHen I move my arm it's difficult to get it where I want it to go. Obviously I have had local anaesthetic, but I thought it'd have worn off by now. Has anyone else had this?
