I've had FS following a fracture to upper arm ( now totally healed) 3 months ago
I have never experienced anything like this in my life!!
And I have had fractures and sprains before
The nightly pain is what really gets to me and reduces my ability to cope with life in general
Only last week I scratched my neighbour's car!!!!
I look after my husband who has chronic heart and lung conditions and he uses oxygen etc and has been so stoic about it, I feel an absolute wimp
Normally I'm a busy active and , though I say it myself, jolly person
2 days ago I had a guided cortisone injection with hydro inflation and was so optimistic that this would "do it"
It was expensive ( the NHS eating list was so long I opted for private feeling a bit guilty about that)
But here I am, up in the night again, 4 o' clock, dressing gown round my shoulders because I'm too scared to put my arm in the sleeve
You know the feeling!!!
I am using my other arm far too much and hope I'm not risking that one too
I work, in spite of being pretty ancient, drive long distances, and am trying to lead a normal life without frightening all my friends away with constant moaning!!
Help please and is there any hope that this injection has just not started working yet?
I was alerted by the consultant to " cortisone flare" but it's not ferocious
Just the same old 2 hourly night pain
