Does Anyone Suffer from Calcific Tendonitis or Frozen Shoulder?
I am in severe pain. Was diagnosed with calcific tendonitis of the rotator cuff 7 years ago. It’s gone back and forth but I gave birth 8 weeks ago and about 4 weeks ago the pain came back worse than ever. I am now told I have frozen shoulder with 50% capacity for use, which seems to be fading fast. I had another steroid shot (had a few in years past) and it did nothing. I did some range-of-motion exercises suggested by my dr. and they made it more painful! I’m scheduled for MRI next week and was given Vicodin by my dr. but the amount prescribed didn’t help at all, I had to take more and that only took the edge off the pain and made me sick to my stomach. So, I’m looking for pain meds online and a friend who is also a Med. Asst. told me Soma might work well, even though it is a muscle relaxant, too. Anyone who has any advice on this please help me, I’m in so much pain and have a baby and other kids to take care of. I need my arm! What can I do?

I had a frozen shoulder a couple of years back and like you pain killers did nothing for the complaint. After several weeks of very little sleep a friend recommended that I see a Reiki practitioner after which I managed to get a short but reasonable through night of sleep. He also recommended that I look at my bed and I changed both the pillow and mattress to a memory foam type so as to support and improve sleeping position. I finally got a physio appointment several weeks after seeing my GP ( doctor) and the physio also used acupuncture.
As to what works the best and how it works I’m not sure but the combination sorted the problem. I’ve had no trouble since and have full mobility in the arm and shoulder. Hope this helps you.
