seen the surgeon who did my shoulders for me today, I told him what happened back in September with Bandit slamming into my shoulder (the one I just had done back in june) and the pain that I have been having since...he is sending me in for a MRI, he thinks I might have torn a ligament....I will keep you all updated..the MRI will take weeks to get...

have a wonderful Friday and weekend!! :hug:sss

OMG My :heart: friend. From one with shoulder pain as I type this to you I can feel your pain. We are going through similar issues although mine is severe tendinitis. Lets hope we can both get rid of these darn shoulder issues so we can get back to normalcy. I will keep positive thoughts that you will improve very very soon. :iconhug1plz:

I had chronic tendonitis and that's why I needed the surgery...I was doing really good until Bandit slammed into me...my physiotherapist has been giving me heat therapy and those little pads that they put gel on and then you feel electric shocks???? I forget what it's called...it's been a little bit of a relief but the pain comes back...the pain just radiates from my shoulder all the way to my hand.....are you having physiotherapy? I hope your pain goes away soon too..I have had shoulder issues for the last 2 years...

I have the exact same pain all the way to my little finger. I have been taking glucosamine with condroitin and it has helped me very much for my knees but my shoulder still hurts but this is due to me spending too much time at my computer doing art using my mouse etc... there are days where I cannot even pick up a pencil without excruciating pain. My friend told me about something else to try and I just ordered it. It is Collagen Hydrolyte powder. It is really a form of gelatin. It helps the tendons and ligaments heal so i just ordered some of it and should have it next week. My doctor told me I can use it with the Glucosamne Condroitin So I will try. I have declined surgery so far as it has improved and was gone for months and now it is back but if I rest it then it is better. I have my own ultrasound machine and the other one is called a tens machine. You can buy both online way cheaper than if you go through your insurance. The tens machine work for the pain as does the ultra sound. i find that ice works really well to calm down the swelling. They sell something called and Ice Cup or Cryo Cup it is kind of like a thick plastic cup with a push up thing and you put the ice in it  www.isokineticsinc.com/product… That works really fast and they sell this at most physical therapy places or medical supply places, It is very cheap and I use mine a lot.  You actually get it frozen then you use it like you would a roll on right to the spot that hurts then your rub it there while holding a towel under it so you do not get soaked as the ice melts. Hopefully this will help. 
 Take care and let us both improve because pain is no fun. :iconhug1plz:

i have never heard of either one of the drugs that you have mentioned, will have to ask my dr about it...as for the ice..i don't know how i would react to it, my body once it gets cold i really tense up....so i don't know if that would work....i really appreciate all your help..BIG HUGSSSSS

i also hope that our pain just disappears real soon!!

Oh these are not drugs they are food. Apple cider vinegar is what you can make salads with but i recommend unfiltered, unpasteurized raw Braggs is a very good brand. If you cannot find it any unfiltered unpasteurized will work. The collagen powder is gelatin you can make jello etc... with but if you get this powder you can buy it in a bigger container. If you buy the hydrolyzed version it will devolve in cold water, If you get the regular version you must dissolve it in hot water. So if you look up Collagen Hydrolized you can see the difference. I would recommend unflavored.

Well I am not sure about the ice then but it sure works for me. Good luck my :heart: friend. Maybe the physical therapist could try the ice and see how you feel. 

Let me know how everything works out. :hug::heart:
