Shoulder pain, occassional tingling in fingers

Posted , 4 users are following.


i have had shoulder pain in my right shoulder for the last 4-5 months. this isn't severe and i am able to lead a very active life. i also have occasional tingling in my fingers of both hands.

i checked my fasting blood sugar in Jan 2019 and in Aug 2019 and both times my blood sugar levels were normal. my urine test was also normal for sugar.

any other possibilities for this pain and tingling?

    It could be something totally unrelated to diabetes. I have had shoulder and neck pain on and off, with tingling, for 50 years and it is treated with osteopathy to relax the muscles and move the neck. I also have occasional bouts of bursitis, when the shoulder joint becomes inflamed, also treated with osteopathy and anti-inflammatories.

    Too many to list. Have you seen your doctor about it ?

    Another question had you been prescribed Cipro or Fluoroquinolone antibiotics for any reason in the months prior to this starting ?

    update on this:

    i did a blood sugar test last week, also kidney and liver functions test and everything is normal. my shoulder ache remains. i had gone to a bone specialist in Aug and he did an Xray and diagnosed it as a bone spur.

    in any case, i will go to a GP again and see what he says
