Last September I started doing some dancing for a bit of fitness. 3 weeks into the weekly sessions I got a sharp stabbing pain radiating through my shoulder from the base of my neck all the way down to the bottom of my rib cage and across. I was seen by a doctor who said I had reactions Frozen shoulder this couldn't of been the case as I have a full range of movement. So I was referred for physio and carried this on for three months with no improvements and re accruing visits to the doctors. By this point I was taking 20 tablets a day including anti depressants as the doctors believed this was the cause. The physio wrote a report back to the doctor explaining that there was no improvment. By this point I had seen 3/4 doctors and I finally was seeing one who was generally concerned and wanting to help. She referred me for blood tests which they found I had a low, but in the normal bracket, levels of b12 and folic acid tablets. They hoped that giving me folic acid tablet supplements would help. These didn't help so I was referred for a neurology appointment which was this morning. From this I will be having an MRI scan however the consultant believes that the reason I am in so much pain is because of my b12 levels. What do I do? This has been going on for nearly a year and in this time I've not been pain free and I am being passed around in circles. Any advice I would be really grateful!
