I had been treated for impimngement in my arms for years. I was given cortisone shots and they always helped. It was discovered many, many years and doctors later that un upslipped  hip was causing the pain from my body being all crooked. I am now seeing an osteopath who is straightening me out put this arm and shoulder thing is really bad. I am going on 5 years of chronic pain. I was hoping some one out there has had the same experience and knows something I dont. I have Lyme Disease and was told the cortisone is bad for someone in my condition but at this point I am thinking the benefits outweigh the risks. Let me know what you know. thanks, amey

Hi Shutterbug,

     Im sorry that your arm is bothering you. Im bless I suppose, I dont feel good I can sit down or prop my feet up. You on other have to use your shoulder no matter what. shakehead   doesnt seem very fair atall.

      I do get "injections" but mine are in my spine. And thanksfully, I only spend a few weeks in severe pain. Sitting here trying to rack my brain as to how one would go about immobilizing a shoulder... Like my daughters music teacher.. Her issues are in her foot of all places. I just dont know how you do it! DSorry my post wasnt very productive, I just wanted to send a *hugg* and  know your in prayers.



TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,  
And sorry I could not travel both  
And be one traveler, long I stood

Hi Stutterbug,

Welcome to the CP forum! I'm sorry that you are having so much pain. I just started seeing an osteopath this week! I'm seeing him 3X and after that, he'll know if he can help me or not. The first time was neat. He told me that my entire cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine were sprained (I don't have back problems - my pain is in my R eye, due to a traumatic injury several years ago). He also told me that my pelvis was misaligned. He corrected all of that. When he got to my shoulders, R side of my neck & R side of my face, he told me that I was "a mess" (to put it lightly). He said that I am going to be a very difficult patient, but that he likes a challenge, so I hope he can help me! I'm thinking positively. I found the osteopath very interesting! I'm sorry that I can't offer you any advice on your condition, but maybe someone else can. This is a wonderful, hugely supportive board!
