Welcome! I've only been on here for a few weeks, but can already promise you that this is a group of people that will look out for you, help you out, and lend a very understanding ear. I'm sorry to hear that you're dealing with so much pain. I completely understand that scary realization that this isn't going away anytime soon. I hope that you're able to find some answers with this new PM (if I read that right). Have a good, pain free week!
Pain Issue: Sub-scapular bursitis, scapular dyskinesia, nerve damage down left arm, shoulder and neck
Treatment: PT, Tens Unit, Oxycodone, Diazepan, Hydrocodone-APAP, Tramadol, Voltaren/Duac gel
Also random hearing loss in both ears at age 18ish, not sure exactly when it happened or why. Got amazing Oticon hearing aids at 20, they've worked wonders! Keep hoping that my doctors can connect my ears to my shoulder and fix them both all at once!! A girl can dream, right?
