    Question pain in shoulder?

    I hope this is the right forum.

    Last week I had a pain in my right shoulder which first appeared briefly about 2 years ago. I saw my dr who said it was frozen shoulder, from time to time it it would twinge, then nothing much.

    Last week the pain got bad so I made an emergency appointment with the Dr who gave me some Ibrofen gel, I had been using Voltero which is 5%, this gel is apparently 10%. I have curvature of the spin and the pain in my arm was very painful, it's hurts now as I type this.

    Had an x-ray and got the results a week later. Turns out according to the receptionist that I had boarderline wear and tear on my shoulder underneath the collar bone. She was very vague and wouldn't tell me what it meant. I've got Aspbergers so I get very confused, so I still haven't a clue really what she means Could someone please explain?

    I have been told yesterday there are many supplement pills I cant take because the Ibrofen gel is only masking the pain. These are:

    Turmeric
    Curcumin
    Devils Claw
    Solgar 7

    Has anyone tried these, and are they good? Also is my condition treatable?

    Many thanks, sorry to ask?

    Curvature of the spin sounds more like politics than health.

    Still, I wish you well, follow your Doc's advice. I would be wary of "folk" cures.

    I think you need to go back to your dr and ask him or her to explain the results to you, not the receptionist. With your Asperger's and curvature of the spine it is absolutely justified and necessary I would say, especially if it is so bad it is painful to type. Ask for an appointment to discuss what you should do about your shoulder and be sure to mention that you are in pain.

    Sorry I can't be more help but this sounds as if it needs proper professional advice, not an amateur on the internet.

    I explained this to her and she said he can't see me until June 20th, she said she would ask him to ring me next Tuesday which she said could be anytime.

    Re: pain in shoulder?

    Yeah, that's about as fast as it's going to happen. The doctor should call on Tuesday 20th June, but they don't know the exact time he or she will be able to call you during the day. Are you able to be in all day? It's a nuisance, I know.

    It might be worth making a list of your questions to be ready when the doctor calls. I know I always forget half my questions when I'm actually talking to the doctor.

    edit: Oh, and this is just the sort of arrangement where mistakes happen in the administration. If you don't get a call, the probable reason is a mistake at their end. If that happens call them the next day and ask what happened. (I would say it's probably 80% likely they will call you, maybe 90%, but there's a chance they mess it up - or that there's an emergency and the doctor can't call.

    or that there's an emergency and the doctor can't call.
    Or the receptionist forgot to tell him/her....

    All excellent advise given in above posts.

    You may also want to consider finding yourself another doctor that is more sympathetic to your needs, and a lot more responsive in a timely manner.

    Re: pain in shoulder?

    I'm guessing that no post here is good news...? At least in terms of having a chat with the doctor about the results?

    I have the same thing. It comes os the result of an occupational hazard of working in a Call Centre - when you need to put your hand up for Support (such as Authorisations, Advice, etc) waiting for a Senior to get to you. I ended up going to a physiotherapist who said much of it was down to Osteo Arthritis, which was normal for my age (57), but he gave me a list of exercises which, although not a complete solution, have helped greatly.
