    Hi All,

    I went to the doctor today for my MRI results on my shoulder. Well, I found out I have shoulder tendonitis.

    Thanks for updating, ES.

    Is that fixable?

    Hi Hubert,

    My Doc put me on oral steroids and he is going to schedule me to see an orthopedic surgeon. I guess when I see the orthopedic doc he will most likely give me a cortisone injection. Looks like I may need physical therapy in the near future to prevent me from gettting a frozen shoulder. Boy, this thing is extremly painful I just hope these treaments bring me some pain relief soon. I am on pain meds and ice seems to help since it temporarily numbs the area. This is something I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy. Please ,let the pain end soon.

    Dimples -

    Have you ever tried accupuncture? I have a friend who swears by it!

    Dimples, I am glad it is nothing more serious, although I know how terribly painful tendonitis is. I have tendonitis of the elbow and I have to be very careful I don't overuse it; consequently, I have become ambidexterous to counter the tendency. Anyway, I hope your shoulder feels better soon. Did the doctor give you anti-inflammatory drugs and tell you to rest the shoulder?

    Thanks Luna!

    GGG, No, I have never tried acupuncture. The thought of all those needles scare me. Who knows if the pain doesn't go away soon, I might be willing to try anything.

    I hope you get some relief from the pain soon!!!

    Thanks kazar,

    They tell me to rest the shoulder and not use it much. Yeah, that is easier said than done. I am on an anti-inflammatory med and on oral steroids and pain medication. I just started the oral steroids today. I have been putting ice on it and it numbs the area and at least that helps with the pain temporarily. Keep of that elbow, I know what you are going through.
