Sorry guys, I need to rant.  I moved to UK already (for a few days now), and my R shoulder still hurting me badly.  It's been more than a month.  I suspect it's something like frozen shoulder.  I searched the interent n my symptoms are so similar.  It is so painful that my R hand cannot reach the back without pain.  The worse thing for me is that my H said it's because I am lack of exercise.  When I said my R shoulder is in pain, the look he gave just make me think that I am irritating.  There is no point in talking to him at all. I dun even bother telling him that my shoulder is really in a lot of pain.  I increased myself the Pred to 20mg and will taper it back to normal next week and see how it goes.  I hv to chk if I can register w/a family doc b/4 I get my student status here.  I am doing physical therapy myself which I learned fm the interent, and hope it won't worsen.
I dun know if the pain cause by lupus or what.  I know I can come to this place and rant it out.

Omega,
Sorry to hear about your shouder. If it feels like you are being stabbed in the shoulder, just beneath the blade, your liver may be to blame. Also lungs can hurt there. RUQ pain, or right upper quandrant pain is classic liver pain and its in the back usually. If it's this kind of pain, you should get to the doc and get your liver enzymes tested, might be a medication doseage adjustment thing. If hubby doesn't believe you, there's not much you can do there except to tell him to wise up, you are sick after all and it's not going to be smooth sailing all time, he's a quarter, get a clue, etc. but I totally understand how you feel. I just hope you can find a doctor or clinic to get to to have them check it out. Maybe a heating pad and some bengay or something might help in the mean time? When I was in the UK I went to the clinic there and they didn't ask to see any papers and treated me at no cost, I don't remember if I was given a temporary SI card or what, I was on a student visa for three months. But the clinic should treat you no cost anyway, I think. Since you have a chronic illness, it might be good for you to touch base with them anyway, so you know where it is if you have to go for something worse.
Love, Marji

Thanks Marji. I will definitely go down to the clinic which close by my house tomorrow n ask them. I think it's just the R shoulder that hurts. I hope the clinic will treat me even though I am not registered as a student yet. I can't until Oct 4. Long wait.

Sorry you are having trouble with your shoulder Omega.

I had frozen shoulder too and I was told by ortho to WAIT until the pain and inflammation subsided to start exercising. Then, my exercise was to take a walk and allow my arms to swing "naturally". It was amazing how much this helped.

I'm glad you are having it checked by a doc because, like Marji said, referred pain is really tricky and it could be something else that needs attention.

Keep us posted!

Blessings!

They should treat you anyway at the government clinic. I don't think they ask for any paperwork. I found the care to be pretty good compared to some of the ER visits and other doc visits I had. And free to boot.
Love, Marji
