      Sorry to hear. That's where mine hurts. It seems like it goes to the bicep and the pec. I have no pain in the back of the shoulder. I had surgery for a torn labrum in September and have had this ever since. 11 months of pain is awful. I thought pain was supposed to subside sooner. What is the doc telling you. They keep telling me to use it but don't do anything that makes it hurt. Hard to do since it hurts all the time.

    Mine is at the top of the soulder and in the bicep. Also I have a deep pain in the lower arm between elbow and rist. It is like a burning pain.

      My pain radiates all the way down my arm also. What does your doc say about it? I had manipulation and arthroscopy two weeks ago. I can now reach above my head but the pain is nearly worse than what it was before.

      Hi Julie, I have had arthroscopy and a bone spur removed, follesed by manipulation and arthroscopy 6mths later. Inbetween I have had  guided spinal injection, single steroid injection, double steroid injection and 3 weeks ago another single steroid injection. Like you after each procedure I can raised my arm, fan in out from the waist to a certain point and I can get it up behind my back to approx bra strap level. However the pain does not go away. It reduces and when the steroid injection wears off the pain is awful. I even have troubel typing as the burning in the lower arm gets worse and the shoulder tightens up. My doctor is not involved as I am having hte treatment privately. MY consultant believe it is the tail end of fs, but every time I go to see him something else is done. IE: xrays, ultrasound, MRI then more injections. I have been told the arm is catching still, but the consultant believes this is due to imflamation which he is trying to get down with the steroid injcetion.  My job is in jeporady as I have had so much time off for appointments and operations and physio and osteo. Your pain will improve as time goes on, but whether it will go completely I would not like to say. My problem started in Oct 2012, so nearly 3 years. I am not sure your doctor has the soloution as this is a specialised area and problem. Keep taking the pain relief and exercise it. smile I have been told it will go, but when I don't know. Unless you suffer form this no one understands the pain. Hiope things improve for you soov. smile
