    I had the same problem. couldn't sleep because slight movement caused jolting pain from shoulder to finger tips.

    I had it diagnosed as Frozen Shoulder. Options were surgery, cortezone shot or physical therapy.

    I went with physical therapy for 3 sessions and decided to develop my own exercises. They told me it would take 2 yrs of physical therapy. I got my range of motion back in 3 months using my exercise. It was painful but got easier and easier to do.

    Recovery rate depends on your personal pain threshold.

    one exercise

    lie on your back with left arm extended on the ground at 90 degrees from your body. Roll your body over towards your arm. Go as far as you can. Roll to flat position and repeat ( 50-100 times). My shoulder gave a clicking sound like something popping. The meniscus forms adhesions to the joint. The sound is breaking of the adhesion points. This really helped reduce my pain.

    To get my range of motion required other exercises. Good luck. If this works for you and you need additional help, contact me.
