What Lynnwood said about sleeping on shoulder is very true. I have several pillows, and there are some body pillows that may help you get comfortable and ease pressure on the shoulders. I have been diagnosed with some type of AI related tendonitis that comes and goes. It bothers me really bad sometimes and now it has completely gone away. Swimming helped I think, even just floating and taking the pressure off my back and joints. I hope you feel better. I've had my arm stay numb for a few days and it was really scary. You might ask your doc if there is anything new that is topical that you might be able to use on it. They keep coming out with new products all the time and I'm using something for muscle stiffness in my arms and hands and legs that is working really well.
