As Laurie said it may help to some degree. However, if you are truly down to bone on bone, you need to explore some other options. Has your Dr discussed syn visc injections with you? In utmost simplicity, it's basically a gel-like formula that would be injected into your shoulder joint providing a barrier between the bones (much like your cartilage used to do). Perhaps a better word to use would be cushion instead of barrier. Honestly, some people are greatly helped, others, not so much. But it would definitely be an option worth exploring for you.
I truly hope you find relief for your shoulder.
Hello peanut. I had recently seen a discussion about this new treatment. It is also used in the spine to provide cushion for vertebrae which have damaged discs. Since it is new, you may have to do some asking. Be sure that you find a physician that has done this many times. It is being said that it does an incredible job when it works and relieves much pain. Good luck and let us know what you pursue.
I also have bone pain but its in my wrist. I was just recently prescribed Celebrex and it seems to help. I'm not having as severe break through pain and I'm sleeping a little better too.
I'm on 60 mg... are you already taking it? What's your dose?
Hope it all works out for you,
