For the last three months, I've been having problems with my right arm and shoulder. The problem I've been having is that I now have very limited mobility in my shoulder and arm so that I cannot lift up my arm from my side properly (I can lift it up somewhat) without severe pain in my shoulder itself and in my upper arm. Also have severe pain just in my shoulder if I try and move my shoulder (something I don't do much now). Take paracetamol but nothing stops the pain . My physiotherapist isn't sure what's wrong but artheritis has been ruled out by blood tests and an MRI scan of my spine. Last month I was referred to the orthopaedic department at my local hospital and they think it might be nerve ending damage in my shoulder so will be having another MRI scan but of my shoulder itself. Am scared now as have no idea what could have caused it as haven't had any injuries to my shoulder that could cause it (as far as I know). Anyone have any idea? Also the mobility of my shoulder and arm have severely and progressively got worse since two months ago. Was prescribed course of Diclofenc but hasn't worked and neither did the exercises I was given by my physiotherapist (seems to me that the exercises I was given have made my shoulder worse). Can anyone please shed some light?
