    I am going through the same thing, I can't find anything that helps ease the pain, I can't sleep and am always on pain. I have physical therapy 3 times a week and every time I go it's pure hell afterwards. They keep telling me that it's going to get better.

    Same here, had FS since October 2017. I have had a cortisone injection which has helped with movement and eased the pain. I use a soft pillow to lay my arm on this helps. Have you seen your doctor?

    I never found a pain killer that helped, even was on oxy after surgery, still didn't help with the pain. Ice is the best thing I found. Cortisone shot helped, took some of the pain away and gave me a little range of motion.I had one before surgery and one 4 weeks after surgery, the second one directly into the rotator cuff. I still ice a couple times a day for pain.

    I’m taking paracetamol, ibuprofen and codeine, but still in pain. The only thing that eases it is ice. I’m having a cortisone injection on Friday and hoping that might take some of the pain away.

    I was diagnosed with frozen shoulder in March 2017.  I spent the next 5 months trying anything that was suggested to relieve the pain that I was having especially at night.  I had two cortisone shots, PT, Ayurvedic medicine, acupuncture, chiropractor, prescription pain meds, more PT and massage.  The only thing that gave me any relief at all was massage, although it was temporary.  In August 2017 I was in South Haven, Michigan and saw a massage therapist.  She referred me to a pain management doctor in town who did acupuncture.  I was hesitant to go to another acupuncturist, but was at my wits end.  I went to see this doctor.  He asked me to raise my arm as high as I could, which was only about 1/3rd of the way up.  He said, "We will take care of that today."  I thought, "No way!"  I was wrong!  I walked out of his office after one treatment and I was completely pain free and able to lift my arm about 7/8th of the way up.  I continued to see him a few more times because I would begin to get small pains, but nothing like I experienced with frozen shoulder.  What the doctor did was not traditional acupuncture.  It was more like a deep tissue acupuncture with electric STIM and a small shot of lidocaine.  It has now been just over a year since I was diagnosed.  I have not seen anyone for help with frozen shoulder since last November.  I still do not have 100% range of motion, but I have been pain free since the first visit to the South Haven doctor.  No one should have to suffer with frozen shoulder.  There is help out there if you keep looking outside of traditional medicine.  The orthopedic doctor I saw scheduled me for Manipulation Under Anesthesia.  I'm so happy I did not do that!

    OMG.... I have had FS now for about 8 weeks..  I am in so much pain.....chronic pain all day long..  I just want to cry....actually...I do cry just about every day.   Nothing has helped so far.  I tried accupunture, that did nothing.  I am going to a chiropractor today.  Just the thought of him trying to move my arm is making me cry now.   I dont know how to live with this.   Has anyone tried chiropractor?

      Isn’t it THE WORSE pain ever!!?

      I feel so bad for you

      I had mine for only a couple of months... I took my arm out of the sling I was told to use 24/7 and it seems to get a little better every day after that.. 

      I do not have full range of montion still but I’m not in constant excruciating pain anymore...

      Try and Use tiger balm.. it helps a bit.... no pain meds work. Not even the strongest ones..

      Hi Everyone, I have to tell you all that I went to a chiropractor on Friday and I actually feel better..   I have not cried since Friday!!  LOL..   I am not in constant pain anymore.  I truly cannot believe it. He just pulled on it to the left (like outward) and then the muscle in back of the armpit area hurt so bad too and he just applied pressure to it for a few.  He also cracked my back and neck which I wasnt expecting him to do that but it worked.    I am going back to day at 4 and then two more times this week too.   It still hurts when I move it certain ways but for the first time in weeks I am not in constant pain.    Until I went - I truly didnt believe in chiropractor medicine.  I asked my ortho doc if I should try a chiro and said, sure if I wanted him to pull on my arm and hurt me but not fix it.  He keeps saying it will go away on it's own.  I'm sure everyone is different but it really worked for me so far.

    The worst pain ever. Im finally getting slightly better. I had surgery to release the arm. Its been about 5 weeks.

    I have a lot of atrophy in my whole arm.

    Ive tried PT, massage, chiro, ice, every rub.

    I guess it needs to take its course.

    Make sure not to leave ice on more than 20 mins at a time.

    Extra pillows for sleeping. 

    Hopefully you have some helping you with every day challenges.

    Sorry you, too are hoing through this.

    Pain killers didn’t work on me either. Not even a little bit! I just posted about about natural pills that cure it. It’s called MSM and you can get it at GNC or amazon. It’s cheap, only around $11-12.

    I had been a miracle for me! In just a few days the pain disappeared and my movement is coming back quickly. I highly recommend it!
